Blog/ Circular ecommerce with Packoorang x Zedify

Harriet Hird

Retailers, are you aware sustainable, low-carbon ecommerce is now possible?

 
Zedify has teamed up with Packoorang, the circular packaging brand, which means that retailers across the country can now turn on a truly circular approach for their shipping.
 
You can finally give your customers what they’re crying out for: guilt-free online deliveries which are low carbon and avoid waste. Packoorang’s innovative bags can be reused up to 100 times and are delivered and collected on cargo bikes by Zedify, which will help you to achieve your net zero ambitions.

So how does it work?

  1. Tell us how many Packoorang Mailer Bags you need per month. We brand them for you and you use them to ship your products
  2. You integrate with Zedify’s API
  3. Your customer selects sustainable delivery at the checkout, and pays a small deposit
  4. They are asked to select a 2-hour delivery window that suits them
  5. At their chosen time, a friendly, Living Wage employed Zedify rider arrives at their door with their order, on a zero emissions cargo bike
  6. Any returns or previously received Packoorang bags can be handed to the rider at the same time as their delivery takes place
  7. The customer can also drop off their Packoorang at one of our locker drops or in store
  8. Your customer receives their deposit back minus a small fee of 50p and, to incentivise their return of the packaging, they get rewarded with brand loyalty credits and competitions
  9. The Packoorangs are sorted, cleaned and returned to you to use again
