UpPacked is a Norwegian startup providing machines and online solutions to refill packaging. Its mission is to cut plastic waste and pollution from consumer goods by making the reuse of packaging easy and highly scalable.
Currently, only 15% of plastic is recycled globally, and there are no recycling capabilities to change this. The founders of UpPacked believe that the reuse and refill of packaging is the only sensible answer to the plastic pollution problem.
Unfortunately, refills are currently unavailable for the majority of products. Therefore they have created an automated refill station that can be placed in big retail shops and refill packaging of various liquid cosmetics and detergents.
