Let’s reuse packaging

The production of e-commerce packaging requires large ammounts of valuable ressources and significantly affects climate and environment. Currently, undamaged packaging material gets thrown away after use. If you are an online retailer, we offer you tips and tools such as our free Woocommerce online shop plugin. If you are a conscious online shopper, we can help you reuse shipment packaging and reduce unnecessary waste.

Why packaging?

We have studied shipping packaging intensively and have always come to the same conclusion. Cardboard packaging is currently the best material available: It is light-weight, stable, and easy to use. But we also think it is far too valuable to be used only once. Rethinking cardboard packaging as a multi-use product has great potential to make a siginificant impact on e-commerce’s climate footprint.
