Packaging Innovation: optimised packaging that reduces waste.

As a team we are seeking for appropriately sized, recyclable packaging that reduces waste and guarantees safe delivery without any damages.

Reduces Waste & Packaging

At our core, we believe that waste is a byproduct of inefficiency, and our ongoing mission is to eradicate it throughout our entire business. This commitment extends to the waste generated during our operations and the waste associated with packaging and retired products from our users. Our approach involves driving innovation, leveraging efficient design principles, and optimizing operations that reduces waste altogether.

Additionally, we actively facilitate programs that empower our users to repair, resell, recycle, and repurpose their products, contributing to a circular economy and further reducing overall reduces waste.

Minimise waste & carbon emissions

Through a science-based approach that integrates lab testing, machine learning, materials science, and collaborations with manufacturers, we continuously strive to revamp and streamline our packaging choices.

When additional packaging becomes necessary, we prioritise lighter and appropriately sized options that reduces waste and carbon emissions, all while ensuring the safe delivery of products. We make conscious efforts to incorporate materials that can be easily recycled at curbside and have a reduced carbon footprint. Additionally, we engage in partnerships with industry peers to develop and expand solutions throughout the entire packaging supply chain.

Minimal waste, maximum protection

Smarter packaging solutions for a sustainable world

Our receivers' preferences revolve around right-sized, recyclable packaging that effectively reduces waste and guarantees safe delivery. Our ongoing efforts involve minimizing unnecessary packaging, optimizing the type, material, and weight of any additional packaging required for secure product delivery. Moreover, we are striving to enhance the recyclability of our packaging to ensure hassle-free curbside recycling for our valued customers.

Flexible packaging

Flexible packaging accounted for 19% of the shipments delivered.

Corrugated boxes

Corrugated boxes were used for 80% of the shipments delivered.

Reducing Waste and Packaging

Aligned with the SDGs, we're champions of reduces waste reduction and sustainable packaging. Our innovative practices promote responsible consumption and production, contributing to a greener, more equitable future.

Waste produced from our internal operations

We are actively working to reduces waste within our operations

In our daily operations, non-inventory waste includes items like used office furniture, corrugate, and break room waste. Inventory waste comprises heavily damaged products, irreparable customer returns, unsafe food, unused non-food inventory, and goods unsuitable for donation or wholesale. We also consider waste from construction activities and supply chain waste by third-party suppliers. For more insights on our waste management approach, refer below.

Noninventory Materials

Non-inventory waste is a byproduct of the materials utilised in our day-to-day business operations.


Inventory comprises items that have been returned by end-users, damaged during handling, or are in excess due to overstocking.


In our efforts to combat food waste, we give top priority to optimizing product selection, management, and distribution systems to minimize excess inventory.
