Sustainability at SwapBox
For SwapBox the definition of sustainability is not a set of rules to adhere to, we believe that sustainability is an always developing and shifting discipline. The primary goal of SwapBox is to eliminate packaging waste created by the food and drinks industry. To achieve our goal we need the right philosophy, which is to create a circular eco-system for food and drinks packaging.
SwapBox' packaging concept aims to be sustainable by reusing materials in two different ways:
Producing packaging that can be reused at least 300x before being recycled.
Recycling in a closed-loop, meaning that all SwapBox packaging products that are not suitable for use will be returned to our manufactures who allow us to produce new SwapBox packaging products from them.
The closed-loop recycling model that SwapBox uses allows us to monitor the total journey of our materials from start to finish. The partners that SwapBox works with are obligated to return every product at the end of its lifecycle. This guarantees the end consumer of the product that the packaging will be processed sustainably. The closed-loop that SwapBox offers tells your customers that they are using and reusing packaging that will eventually be recycled into new products instead of being downcycled or burned for energy.
