Jingdong Introduces Re-Usable Packages To Promote Sustainable Consumption

 

JD.com, also known as Jingdong Mall has invented re-usable packages that it will use to parcel its customer’s goods. According to the giant e-commerce store, the new packaging program will reinforce its environmental conservation efforts. Also, the green pack will cut down the e-commerce store’s cost of packaging.

Speaking after the announcement, JD.com’s head of planning and development alleged that Jingdong Mall was continuously searching for innovative ways to reduce e-commerce waste. The executive added that their green pack would let them rest assured that their services discharge trivial carbon discharges.

In line with a report issued by JD.com, the new reusable packs will cut down the cost of packaging by RMB 32.5 million per year, if just 10% of their customers’ consent to use the packs. The green packs can be re-used ten times before they wear out.

How does the program work? Jingdong Mall says that it will allow its clients to decide whether they need to use the green box. Willing customers will return the green box to the delivery personnel upon receiving and unpacking their order.

JD.com will reward compliant customers with its Jingdou loyalty points that can be exchanged for free products. The free environmentally friendly pack can parcel all small and medium-size goods like jewelry, cosmetics, and mobile phones. However, it cannot be used to pack fresh food.

Already, JD.com has implemented the re-usable packaging program in China’s major business hubs like Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. The chief-commerce store says that by the end of 2018, the environmentally friendly program will be serving over 20 cities in Asia.

The green pack is not Jingdong’s first environmental conservation program. In 2017, the store initiated the Green Stream Initiative, a conservancy program that advocated for the use of sustainable packing materials.

In particular, the Green Stream Initiative advocates for the use of recyclable and reusable materials in the world’s e-commerce industry.

The initiative aims to reduce the unfriendly environmental boxes used in the supply chain by 10 billion. Also, the initiative aims to cut down the use of plastic packs by 50% and increase the use of recyclable packs by 80%, by the end of 2020.
