The life cycle assessments below are based on our three most used packaging. Based on the design, material composition, and tests, we have determined a design potential for each one. The LCA reports are conducted to understand the environmental impacts of the packaging throughout their life cycle, including raw material extraction, circulation and disposal, in comparison to single-use packaging.
The calculations are made by Denmark’s leading auditing and consulting company, which has made a simulation tool that makes it possible for webshops to calculate exactly how much CO2, tree consumption, and water footprint they avoid by using RE-ZIP. Read below about the environmental benefits of using RE-ZIP packaging, compared to disposable plastic and cardboard packaging.
When designing RE-ZIP packaging, a key consideration is ensuring that it minimizes CO2 emissions as quickly as possible. This is achieved by designing the packaging to match the expected rate of reuse. On average, the return rate of RE-ZIP packaging is 80%, which is equal to 4.4 circulations. As a result, we ensure that the packaging reduces CO2 emissions already at the first or second use compared to single-use packaging.
