re.pote

The re.pote project is a tool that allows more people to produce less waste when using meal delivery services. It’s a full circular design system for reusable boxes that works like this: we supply restaurants with these reusable containers so their clients can buy one of them as an add-on to each meal on their menu. 

The food then comes into this non-disposable box instead of the traditional and environmentally harmful single-use packaging. Afterwards it is possible to keep using it at home or call us to pick it up. In this case we properly clean the returned containers and send them back to the restaurants. Any way it goes (home or back to the cycle) the outcome is the same: no waste was made! This is all made possible by a subscription fee for the restaurants and partnerships with delivery apps. Reusable, returnable and recyclable: re.pote.
