RE-ZIP’s unique packaging, IT platform, and infrastructure are the solution to several of the issues companies encounter when reducing the consumption of disposable packaging. That is why RE-ZIP is happy to establish collaborations that go beyond the core product, which is circular packaging for e-commerce.
RE-ZIP and dao have entered a partnership, making it possible to return RE-ZIP packaging in dao points all over Denmark. This means that online shoppers who choose RE-ZIP circular packaging as an alternative to single use packaging can now more easily return their packaging in any of the more than 1.200 dao drop-off points. Up until now, they have only been able to return RE-ZIP at PostNord shops and post boxes, but we have now taken the first step towards a commercial infrastructure for circular packaging in Denmark.
Der sker spændende ting i RE-ZIP. Vi har nemlig afsluttet en fundingrunde på et større millionbeløb med eksisterende investor Planetary Impact Ventures og nu også Vækstfonden. Pengene skal primært benyttes til at udrulle infrastruktur i Danmark, digitalt såvel som fysisk, så det bliver markant nemmere for forbrugerne at returnere emballagen fra deres online køb.
Our green journey outside of Denmark’s borders continues to Poland, where we are the first to introduce reusable packaging for online shopping. We have started a partnership with InPost and MODIVO. This project is imporant not only for the ecommerce industry, but also for the cities of Poland, with whom we collaborate on the InPost Green Cities project.
RE-ZIP takes its first step into Austria in the fight against single use packaging in the e-commerce sector. We have launched apilot project with three strong brands (INTERSPORT, Thalia Bücher, and dm drogerie markt) as well as the Austrian postal office, Österreichischen Post. We are thrilled to launch this partnership and proud to be making a difference outside of Denmark’s borders.
RE-ZIP forms a partnership with the danish correctional facility which means that the production of RE-ZIP packaging will be produced environmentally and socially sustainable. Going forwards, the main part of our packaging will be produced in Denmark and be a fast part of the socializing work in the danish correctional facility. The production is set to train the inmates, develop their social and professional competencies and motivate them to take responsibility for their own lives within the framework of society.
The partnership gives us a HUGE smile and we are very proud because the production of our packaging hopefully helps the inmates further – a life without criminality.
The danish correctional officer is also pronouncing: “In addition to having their products produced locally, RE-ZIP is taking an essential social responsibility, which is about helping criminals move on to a life without crime and to a society with less crime and more individuals who participate actively in the society”.
The concept about Rentista is basically that you can rent your clothes instead of owning it. The concept is known very well worldwide but Rentista was the first mover to do this in Denmark. It’s all about reducing the buy-and-throw-out behavior, and instead, try to prolong the product life cycle by using it again and again. We are at the RE-ZIP team so happy to hear the way Rentista is making use of the circular business. Therefore, RE-ZIP and Rentista are going into a partnership to make the whole concept more sustainable.
RE-ZIP has made recycled packagings that is based on our patented design. The packaging is strong enough for recycling and very easy to furl when it is not being used. It means that Rentista will be able to supply sustainability packaging, and the project will be able to reduce the utilities of clothing and single-use packaging. All things considered, two different companies with two different products/services but one common ground to contribute to a better conversion.
Although the RE-ZIP packaging is maintained and cleaned on an ongoing basis, it does not last forever. But even though some are no longer suitable for use in e-commerce, they can easily serve another purpose, and thus do even more good for the environment. A good example is the Butts movements, where they use them to collect waste.
