Catherine commented on Unpackaged for Good - the micro business refill solution.

Hi Cary,

Thanks for your comment - although not sure it's meant for us, more for the organisers?! I've been really interested to see all the refill ideas in this space - I've been working on refills in retail for 10 years and to see so many people now innovating in the space is brilliant. I'm equally interested to see if the competition organisers think that any of us can work together to collaborate and improve our ideas!

Best wishes,
Catherine

Catherine commented on Unpackaged for Good - the micro business refill solution.

Hi Kate,

Thanks for the message! I've always been interested in the more 'social' applications of the Unpackaged model so this was a great opportunity to work through some of the issues - it's no mean feat to replace those damn single use sachets.

Comments - I'd welcome any feedback but particularly: on the ground specialists who know the communities where we're thinking about testing the idea... Researchers/ Behaviour change specialists to help design the intervention... Supply chain experts who can look at how to ensure the whole value chain is incentivised... Manufacturers...

There are also a few other ideas on here that have overlap so I'll be interested to see if the competition thinks there's anyway we could/ should work together for mutual benefit.

Thanks!
Catherine
