RePack returnable packaging
RePack’s reusable and returnable packages come in three adjustable sizes and are designed to fold into letter size when empty so they can be returned to RePack via a regular post box. RePack takes the packaging back, checks it, cleans it and redistributes it for reuse. RePacks are designed to last at least 20 cycles, which is why they are made from durable, long-lasting material that is fully recyclable.
A RePack fee covers the package itself plus a global, empty packaging return so that returning an empty RePack is free from anywhere in the world. This fee can be paid by the retail partner, or by the customer, depending on how the retail partner integrates RePack into their business model.
According to RePack’s assessment, their model reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80% when compared to single-use disposable package deliveries. The direct return rate is 75% – some users decide to keep the packaging and reuse it themselves. Some RePacks are returned directly to brands as customer returns; brands can then reuse the packaging for new customer deliveries, saving the need to use yet more single-use packaging.
