Reusable packaging pilot aims to find convenient options for average consumer


Toronto – Non-profit company Circulr has soft-launched a reusable packaging service in Toronto and Guelph as part of Impact Zero’s Impact Project Accelerator.

Circulr’s services help companies reuse their packaging by managing the collection, washing, and logistics required to reuse glass packaging. Circulr manages every step of the process from tracking the customer’s initial purchase, to the reverse logistics needed to get sanitized packaging back to the manufacturer.

Their pilot is running in collaboration with PriZurv, Elva’s All Naturals, Green and Frugal in Toronto, and The Flour Barrel in Guelph, Ont.

“This pilot is an exciting opportunity for us to make reusable packaging a convenient option for the average consumer,” said Charles, co-founder and chief executive officer of Circulr, in a news release. “We hope to learn as much as we can from the pilot, and are thrilled to work with more amazing brands and retailers in the future.”
