'I’d propose a something dropship wise for communities that involved a refill shipping container that moved to and from central locations for communities to utilise, reducing carbon footprint and packaging all at once and providing a temporary community meeting point where a community had lost it’s shops/pubs etc. Products would be base household items like olive oil, washing up liquid, detergent as well as foods, rice, pasta etc. Transportable, long life, packaging reduction would be by users keeping DropFill containers or their own and repeatedly using them. Online customisable orders could be made where the community choose what items they'd like refills for based on using an online vote/choice platform.
