The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an Ecommerce boom - meaning shoppers now rely on home deliveries for online purchases. This creates substantially more wasted packaging so to help lessen this environmental impact, we have launched a 'Return to Recycle' portal.
Why should you launch an online recycling scheme?
The beauty industry alone produces more than 120 billion units of packaging globally
95% of packaging for cosmetics is thrown out after one use, and just 14% of plastic makes it to the recycling center
INTRODUCING A SMARTER WAY TO RECYCLE...
ReBOUNDs ‘Return to Recycle’ portal allows retailers to launch an online recycling scheme, incentivising shoppers to return excess packaging, or end of life products to be recycled.
Measure your environmental impact
By using our Return to Recycle portal you can easily report on the amount of items which have been recycled and diverted from landfill. Allowing you to strengthen your CSR and sustainability messaging with meaningful and accurate statistics.
Encourage shoppers to recycle even when stores are closed
Most retail recycling schemes rely on access to physical stores, which makes it difficult for shoppers in remote locations to participate and with many in-store recycling initiatives closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, shoppers cannot reach drop-off points easily.
By launching an online 'return to recycle' portal, you can extend your reach nationwide! Shoppers can continue their recycling efforts by getting a return label online.
Reward shoppers for recycling with discounts or loyalty schemes
With rewards built-in, retailers can offer discount codes, or vouchers to consumers after they register their recycling online, incentivising shoppers to recycle.
Not just for the Beauty Sector
Use ReBOUND's portal to offer product refills, recycle coffee pods, collect excess packaging, old toys, CD's and DVD's, disused electricals etc.
Whatever industry you're in, our online recycling portal can support your sustainability initiatives.
"Our business relies on collecting empty beauty packaging from retailers and consumers. With salons and shops currently closed, our return bins cannot be used, so ReBOUND’s online recycling portal is a game-changer"
Steven Banks, Founder
"With ReBOUND we can provide our customers an easy solution to send their shoes back to be recycled and turned into new WVS outsoles. This helps us get closer to closing our production loop and solves the problem of what to do with our products when they cannot be worn anymore. We expect to be introducing our first sneakers made from recycled WVS shoes later this year."
