If you are interested in cutting back or even eliminating single-use disposable packaging, read the following promotional material from a new venture that begins this spring in the United States and France. Though it’s product range is limited, I believe it has the potential for rapid growth and rapid increase in the number of products offered. Here is what they say:
“Loop is a circular shopping platform that transforms the packaging of your everyday essentials from single-use disposable to durable, feature-packed designs. Not so long ago, the milkman delivered reusable bottles and later picked them up to be refilled.
“Loop is the milkman re-imagined – honoring our past from a modern perspective. A revolution in design from your favorite brands – your everyday essentials are now available in durable, functional packaging that’s beautiful enough to display. No more hassle from trash and recycling – simply drop your used empties back into the Loop Tote and schedule a free pick-up from your home. Instead of getting a box every month, we’ll automatically replenish the products you send back so that your favorites are available as you need them, in the first subscription model that manages itself.
“Loop hygienically cleans and sanitizes the empty packaging you send back so they are ready for reuse, instead of ending up as waste after a single use. The Loop tote is a breakthrough zero-waste delivery system that eliminates wasteful single use shipping materials (say goodbye to that stack of cardboard boxes and ice packs). Loop is launching in Spring 2019 in the United States and France.”
