Towards a recycling society
Until now, there have been more than 1.1 billion items listed in Mercari. Items that would otherwise be thrown away now find new value, and by reusing them, we are moving one step closer to a society without waste.
At Mercari, we want a world where our limited resources are used wisely, so we took on the challenge to not only promote re-using items, but also packaging materials.
Building new habits
The first step to promote re-using packaging materials is to create the habit of not throwing them away immediately. For this, we have created a convenient Mercari Eco Pack that can be used hundreds of times. This way, we intend our customers to send it to each other, time after time, helping us build the habit of re-using the packaging after they receive it.
We will use tarpaulin, a material used in products like tents, that can be used multiple times.This design is based on the idea of reuses being linked together.It uses two colors: Mercari’s red and an eco-friendly green.
You can re-use this Mercari Eco Pack on your next listing/shipping.
If you are concerned it might open, you can use a cable tie, etc.
Can be used with RakuRaku Mercari Shipping (NekoPos, A4, 2.5 cm thickness), and with YuYu Mercari Shipping (Yu-Packet, A4, 3 cm thickness)
Size: 312 mm wide, 193 mm high.
Water resistance: Will use a highly water resistant fastener for closure.
Mercari’s sustainability goals
At Mercari, we aim for a sustainable society without waste, by focusing on only what is absolutely necessary.
