Facts in Plastic waste from e-Commerce Packaging
In 2021, e-commerce sales worldwide are expected to grow to $4.88 trillion. The boom in e-commerce seems unstoppable, as more people sign on to the convenience of home delivery and the extra variety that can be found when shopping online.
Yet the shift to e-commerce is leading to more single-use plastic waste due to packaging. This is happening even though environmental consciousness has become a common value in much of the world, evidenced in part by consumers’ willingness to pay more for sustainable products.
No organization has quantified just how much additional plastic packaging is being used due to e-commerce, or the net impact on the environment. Yet the plastic waste generated through e-commerce is one point of strong criticism from the general public, since B2C online purchases must be packaged one extra time (as compared to bulk B2B items) to protect them during shipping. In addition, return rates for items bought online are as high as 30 percent, which implies multiple purchases of the same item.
The Impact of COVID-19
We have a plastic pollution problem here in Asia because investment in recycling infrastructure hasn’t been able to keep pace with the exponential growth of consumption. That consumption and consumer purchasing patterns are inextricably linked to retail and e-commerce companies. What’s more, new purchasing habits driven by COVID-19, are causing consumers to turn increasingly to e-commerce brands and online retailers underscoring the opportunity and necessity of having them as part of the solution.
Potboy Groceries' Pledge - Use Green Packaging Alternatives Where We Can and Reduce Dependency on Plastic Packaging
Using eco-friendly alternatives to our packaging is a the way we adopt to minimize our e-commerce business’ packaging waste. This could be as simple as collecting your recycling bags for your next purchases. By now, we know that plastic is toxic and dangerous for us, wildlife and the planet in general. It can release harmful chemicals into the soil or water, is consumed by animals, and causes serious damage — in some cases, life-threatening — to hundreds of species, including humans.
Potboy Groceries team is also a strong believer of delivering impact back to the community. In order to protect the Mother Earth, our team at Potboy Groceries are committed to minimize the environmental footprint. We encourage our lovely shoppers to do the same and one of the ways is by giving your recycle bags to our abang delivery during your next delivery session!
