Bower’s vision is to make recycling a rewarding no-brainer and create a world free from trash. We’re aiming to become the first impact tech unicorn in Sweden, helping +1B consumers make sustainable choices by rewarding them for doing the right thing.
We’re a bold and visionary, yet down-to-earth and heart-centered, tech company based in Stockholm. Our mission is to reduce the number of packaging that ends up as trash in nature and increase recycling rates by giving all packaging a value in monetary terms – ”pant” – just like with PET bottles and cans in Sweden. That’s why we’ve developed a world-unique mobile app that rewards recycling of all consumer packaging at regular recycling bins.
We are first-movers with global customers such as Procter & Gamble, Unilever and Mondelez, currently operating in Sweden and in USA. We have a revolutionarily scalable business model where the only thing we need to do to scale up to other markets is to pinpoint the GPS coordinates of already existing recycling stations. In cases where we lack this data, consumers upload the stations themselves. We've been on the top lists of both App Store and Google Play in Sweden since we launched in August 2019.
