RePack Wins the Nordic Council Environment Prize!

2 November 2017

Yesterday was amazing as RePack won The Nordic Council Environment Prize. We are super happy!

Our win shows how important environmental issue the packaging waste really is for the web stores.

Here is what the Adjudication Committee wrote about RePack receiving the Environment Prize 2017:

Its product turns the environment into a business opportunity, using accessible and innovative techniques to draw attention to opportunities for recycling and highlight the unnecessary use of resources and generation of waste.

RePack was chosen as the winner among eleven nominees from the Nordic countries. The prize is worth approx. 47 000 euros.

Nordic deposit-based return system for beverage packages as a role model

When we received the prize at the prize ceremony, we wanted to highlight the source of inspiration for inventing RePack. This is Nordic deposit-based return system for beverage packages.

Deposit-based return system is a great solution for packaging waste. RePack borrows a lot from its role model, and I wish that as many as possible companies and countries would understand the potential of the deposit-based system, told our COO Petri Piirainen.

We are still amazed by this awesome prize. It gave us even more motivation to eliminate packaging trash from the Nordics and around the world! Let's do it!
