Packshare represents a new way of doing business. Instead of focussing on what individual businesses can do to cut costs or reduce their impact, Packshare encourages small businesses to work together and with their local communities to reframe the way that we all think about waste.
We believe that every small business can benefit from using Packshare, and we want every business in the UK to register. Our dream is for each business who signs up to donate a small amount per month to help us keep the site running, promote Packshare, and eventually to fund further eco projects.
What are the benefits to your business?
Source free packaging from your local community, cutting your costs and reducing your impact on the environment.
Find other businesses to use your waste packaging, reducing the amount you pay to have it taken away.
Build relationships with potential customers in your local community, when they physically bring you packaging.
Discover and connect with other eco-minded businesses in your community, helping you find other eco-projects in your local area.
Consumers are becoming increasingly discerning of businesses’ eco-credentials. Simply and visibly make your business a little bit more sustainable.
Show people that you care about your community by working to reduce waste in your area. Give local people an opportunity to do something better with their waste.
Big businesses and internet shopping is impacting our communities, towns and cities. Encourage people to visit their local high streets, and chat with local business owners.
As you can see, we think Packshare is about more than just packaging. But it all starts with you creating a profile, letting us know what packaging you can use, and telling everyone else that you’re using it.
We believe that the benefits to your business are easily worth £1 or £2 a month, and your monthly donations mean that we can continue improving Packshare, promoting it to new businesses, and increasing its impact across the UK.
But we also know that not everyone can afford it, and not everyone wants to donate to a service that they can get for free.
