Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

In 2029 in Europe, 40 billion packages will be delivered. That's as much disposable packaging thrown away! A growth extremely wasteful in terms of resources, CO2 emissions that the recycling industry can not keep up with.

How is the problem solved?

RePack is a reusable and returnable packaging service. It replaces single-use packaging for online retailers and their customers. RePack delivers the goods, and is then sent back via the mailbox for reuse, eliminating the need to produce new packaging and/or manage its waste.

What is the customer target?

Consumer / User E-commerce, online stores and circular businesses

How is this solution different?

Unlike other packaging alternatives, RePack truly closes the packaging loop. It has a circular life cycle in a linear industry. RePack stands out because it's a sustainable solution to a real-world problem. Beyond the environmental and economic benefits, the user experience improves since they are freed of futile waste.
