Ideas for sustainable reusable packaging

Österreichische Post lives and breathes sustainability and has done for a long time. Österreichische Post was the first postal services company to guarantee its clients CO2-neutral delivery, as early as 2011. Today, Österreichische Post supports the ideas competition "Re:Postboxing - ideas for reusable packaging." We have teamed up with the Graz-based company ISN - Innovation Service Network to look for ideas regarding the parcel packaging of the future. "Re:Postboxing" is all about finding ideas for the increased use of reusable packages to reduce waste from single-use packaging. Everybody can make a sustainable contribution and submit ideas. The sky is the limit for your creativity! The community voting is open until 15 August 2022!

During the years of the COVID-19 pandemic, e-commerce reached new heights, and the parcel volume grew significantly. The same is true for the amount of single-use packaging that ends up in the trash after just a single use. In order to curb negative effects on humanity and the environnent, innovative solutions for reusing shipping boxes are needed.
