- Returnity wins in the Sustainable Consumption Category of Fashion Innovation Award 2020 – Sustainability Edition
Brooklyn, New York, October 29, 2020 – Returnity was named the winner in the Sustainable Consumption category of the Fashion Innovation Award 2020 – Sustainability Edition. The Award is a part of the Fashion Innovation Week, organized by NetComm Suisse, the Swiss e-commerce association. The Sustainable Consumption category in particular focuses on solutions contributing to the circular economy, including new customization techniques, sharing economy, product life extension models, waste management, and consumer education.
Returnity is considered the leader in reusable shipping packaging, working with companies to build out solutions and empower the systems necessary for companies to shift to the new circular economy. They accomplish this by designing and manufacturing reusable boxes and bags that are disrupting the wasteful, expensive, and environmentally harmful shipping packaging market as well as designing closed-loop logistics systems that make it easy – and cost-effective – to reaggregate empty packaging.
The three other categories are Sustainable Materials, Sustainable Production, and Sustainable Retailing and Logistics. Out of over 100 international applicants, the list was narrowed down to 16 finalists, and finally the 4 winners were chosen by a prominent international jury panel composed of high-level industry executives, tech leaders and investors. The winners were Piñatex (UK), Pro Flocus (Netherlands), RePack (Finland), and Returnity (USA).
Returnity Innovations is the pioneer in the elimination of single use shipping packaging. Returnity builds out solutions and empowers the systems necessary for companies to shift to the new circular economy. Returnity will replace the use of over 6 million shipments of cardboard boxes and poly mailer bags with reusable packaging by August 2020. For more information, please visit www.returnity.co.
