Absolutely not! Sharing is caring. So go ahead, order for the whole famile. You can borrow as many SwapBoxes as you want with any one order. Also, if you still have a SwapBox from a previous order, you can borrow again without having to return previous ones. Just make sure to not exceed the 14 day return rule for any SwapBox on your account.

When you return your reusable SwapBox(es) to any of our partner locations, the partner is responsible to register the returns. Please don't hesitate to contact us at

What if I don't return my SwapBox on time? 

Still have questions? 

Can I only borrow one SwapBox at a time? 

Why is my returned SwapBox still on my account?

If you missed your return date, your account will be temporarily locked, and you cannot borrow any new SwapBoxes until you return the overdue SwapBox (Please allow 24 - 48 hours to process the return.)

To get Swapping again, you can unlock your account by paying a late fee of €1 per late SwapBox. 

If you would like to keep the SwapBox, lost a part of the SwapBox, or misplaced it all together. You can email us and we will help you. 


It's not our purpose to make money from late fees or SwapBox purchases. For the purpose of creating a reusable system, the fees simply helps us to cover our costs and ensure that the SwapBoxes remain in circulation. 

There's no catch! We believe that sustainability shouldn't cost more. We keep our operations going by charging a small fee to our restaurant partners. They pay us what you typically pay for disposable packaging, so it's also cost effective for restaurant owners.

How is SwapBox Free? What's the catch?

Please send us any questions and we will be happy to help!
