2. Loop (2019)

Loop is a new subscription service for zero-waste grocery used by huge companies (including P&G, Unilever and others) that is due to start this 2019 in US and France. Packages are non disposable and when a replacement arrives, they pick up your old containers for reuse. This feels very big.

Loop will send you name-brand products, like Tide detergent, Crest mouthwash, or Häagen Dazs ice cream. When you’re done, you ship the empty container back, where it gets cleaned and reused for the next customer.
