You are a conscious online retailer and would like to offer your customers a sustainable alternative for the shipment of their purchases while saving money for packaging yourself?
WeRePack.org lets you implement the option of choosing a reused package for your customers directly in the ordering process of your e-commerce store. To this end, we offer our free, easy-to-use and open source WeRePack for WooCommerce plugin. All you have to do is to install the plugin and get started right away. You actively help to reduce packaging waste and promote the sustainability concept of reuse.
How to get the used packages?
E-commerce usually generates plenty of leftover packaging. You can reuse the undamaged parcels from your own incoming orders or returns. If you don’t have enough packaging, you can invite your neighbours to drop off their boxes. We are working on ideas and ways to help every single box get as many shipping cycles as possible. Stay tuned!
We have spoken to many retailers and consumers and, of course, there are some reservations and uncertainties. Like whether there can be consequences if branded packaging is reused. Or whether customers might think that they are not worthy of receiving new packaging. The good news is that we’ve been able to dispel all concerns so far. Reusing packaging material has no legal consequences, even if the material is still branded by other companies, and is no cause for concern among customers. According to our surveys, most customers would at least like to be offered this option. After all, we all know the unpleasant feeling of opening a package and immediately finding a handful of garbage. However, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us. We will be happy to find an answer or solution with you.
