Self-service plastic-free refills
Consumers can buy plastic- and packaging-free refills of ecological cleaning products from automated liquid-refill stations using their own reusable packaging. The vending machine produces stickers that act both as a receipt and a product description.
The vending machines are made by a Slovenian company, and are an example of reuse and recycling practice themselves, as their frames are typically made from recycled materials.
Euromonitor International has selected Ljubljana’s vending machine as the most innovative retail concept of 2019 as part of its annual global retail market research. The machines are also now available in some Slovenian cities, as well as in Rijeka in Croatia.
