Startup In Chile Prevents Excess Waste While Shopping

A startup in Chile called Algramo is helping to prevent excess waste while shopping, by providing customers with refills with exactly the amount that they need. All you have to do is order online, and the company comes straight to your door via electric vehicle to give it to you. As a result, this helps to massively reduce the amount of excess waste that we throw away from leftover food products. Likewise, it also means that much less packaging is thrown away into landfills, which is better for the environment.

To date, Algramo has achieved some remarkable feats, including preventing over 362,845 CO2 kg and 97,539kg of plastic from entering the environment. However, benefits aren't restricted purely to the environment; their service also benefits the customer too. According to their website, customers can save up to 30% from using the service versus if they purchased a new product every time.

In addition, the whole process of using the service is incredibly easy. All a customer has to do is order what they need from the app and either have it dropped off at your door or use a nearby dispenser, which can be found in supermarkets. However, the company has plans to expand into schools, service stations, universities, and convenience stores. This makes it both easy and convenient to use. In addition, if you want to see how much waste you could personally prevent from entering the environment, you can find out by visiting their website.
