I like it Yi-Chen.

Expansion of the system would likely see more participation and higher return levels as people can use it and returnanywhere they go in the city.

Could you partner with the government to implement this to compliment national waste reduction?

Hi Soma, great to see this to the ideas stage!

Great idea!

Now if you can deliver this in a plastic free or reusable packaging this would be a winner!

Perhaps point of sale refilling stations could work? I imagine a modern take of a gum machine with a video screen showing the benefits of the product. Branded, scannable reusable containers can help you track consumptin patterns and link consumers with rewards.
This would provide a big marketing presence in store and allow consumers to refill your containers for rewards or use their own container. POS refilling would also minimise your freight costs as you would ship in bulk to retailers.

See my idea for a global standard on refillable packaging,
