RohrPost / Packaging


RohrPost was created in an effort to avoid plastic and one-way packaging in the shipping of online shops. Especially single clothing items are often sent in poly-bags that are not able to be reused after use. RohrPost connects two existing systems. The dispatch system of the post office and the deposit return system of German supermarkets. If the customer decides to keep the goods, he throws the tube into a deposit machine the next time he visits a supermarket. He then receives a certain amount of money, that can be redeemed when shopping. The packaging is collected in crates, cleaned and then delivered back to the shops that use RohrPost.
