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 RePack for WooCommerce plugin. All you have to do is to install the plugin and get started right away. You are actively contributing to reducing packaging waste and promoting the sustainability concept of reuse.
How to get the used packages?
E-commerce usually generates plenty of leftover packaging. You can select the undammaged parcels from your own incoming oders or returns from your customers and reuse them. If you don’t have enough packaging, you can invite your neighbours to drop off their boxes. We are also already working on ideas and ways to help every single box get as many shipping cycles as possible.
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 so far, we have been able to dispel all concerns. Sending packaging material that has already been used – or is branded with advertising – has no legal consequences, nor is it cause for concern among customers. On the contrary: According to our surveys, most customers would like to at least be offered the option. After all, we all know the uncomfortable feeling of opening a parcel and immeadiatly having a handful of rubbish. 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.
