Summary of Fashion For Good world latest report on reusable packaging!

Posted by Clémence Avignon on May 3, 2021 10:49:49 AM  •  read time 4 min

Our partner Fashion For Good released a very, very important case study for reuse in e-commerce. We gather the main findings in this blog post, but we also strongly recommend that you read the 42 pages too! So far, there’s been a lack of in-depth, external case studies on reusable packaging, to help brands, retailers and consumers make informed choices. 

At the same time, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, e-commerce is expected to reach 40 billion (!!!!!!) deliveries per year in Europe in 2029. The USA experienced the same level of e-commerce growth in the second quarter of 2020 as it had over the previous 5 years.

This growth twins with a skyrocketing demand for virgin raw material, and generates a crazy, never-seen-before amount of trash.

RePack in North America: first results

Posted by Clémence Avignon on Nov 12, 2020 1:02:45 PM  •  read time 2 min

After very successful pilots in 2019 (we wrote a story about it here), we re-designed our RePack to fit with the American market. Then, 2020 happened. Riots, fires, elections, covid.. outch.

We couldn't have picked a tougher year to launch in North America. It has been challenging at time (read: bloody hard) BUT we're really freaking happy to still be on track and to kick-off the launch with brands that are more than ready to get rid of trash.

Matkahuolto x RePack : Reusable Packaging for all.

Posted by Clémence Avignon on Apr 29, 2020 3:48:26 PM  •  read time 1 min
Talking from experience, when I receive a package from my family or friends, it usually comes in a new box they bought for the occasion, or in an old cardboard box they had around - did they keep it on purpose or where they too lazy to bring it to the recycle bin? Anyway, those boxes might last 2 rounds, top.
