Business as usual gives consumers a linear consuming alternative: buy, consume, and eventually pollute the environment. Recycling is not enough and cheap either. Packages pollute the world since their existence. Since the 1950s, approximately 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics have been produced in the world. Mapped plastic flows in Sweden ONLY in 2016/2017 are import + production: 2,411,000 tons, PET bottles: 25,000 tons, packaging: 325,000 tons. Plastics production and the incineration of plastic waste give rise globally to approximately 400 million tons of CO2 a year. Globally, 5 to 13 million tons of plastics (1.5 to 4 % of global plastics production) end up in the oceans every year. Less than 30% of such waste is collected for recycling. There are 250 recycling stations in Stockholm and in 2019 recycling of packaging is a maximum of 44%. Detergent packaging price is between 0.30-0.80 US$. Package free shops aren't accessible and convenient enough.
Beside the plastic problems, consumers are looking for convenient shopping solutions. Food and grocery items delivery solutions such as Getir, Uber-eats, Delivery hero, etc... is a growing trend. But small amount delivery is not a environmental friendly solution.
Finally, corporates and companies like Unilever, P&G, Coca Cola, Heineken, Suez, ISS Global need to show that they have sustainable solutions. Partnering with refilling solution companies will give them prestige and they also will be part of the solution.
Convenient and sustainable shopping is possible.
We build refilling solutions like refilling robots, refilling trucks, and package free online grocer website to replace shopping with packages.
Start: Refillistic acts as the middle agent of FMCG such as detergent, pasta, disinfectant, flours, milk, ketchup etc. We will sell those consumer goods with a profit margin through our technological solutions as refilling robots in common/public areas (every 5th floor of a residential tower, common laundry rooms, etc.).
Our refilling robots and trucks will replace shopping single-use packaging at groceries, our business model will replace business as usual and reusing habits in consumers will replace recycling. Our disruptive method is eliminating the extra cost and the waste of single-use packaging.
When a consumer buys a product from Refillistic, It will create an positive impact on environment. Each refill will turn to a data about the reduction of single use plastic packages. This data will be shared with partner corporates and companies because they will be part of a convenient and sustainable solution. Refillistic shares the data and impact with them automatically, so they can share in their sustainability report or social media accounts as a proud partner. We expect consumers change their habit because the world is in climate crisis but waiting this takes so much time and effort. Let's give them a convenient shopping alternative by using technology in their green cities and use their resources which is single use plastic packages in sustainable way.
