Soon, ALL Of Your Household Items Will Come In Reusable Containers
Okay most likely, if you’re reading this, you weren’t around during the time of milkmen. I wasn’t, that’s for sure, but you get the basic idea: a gentleman brings milk in glass jars to your home, you consume said milk, and then leave them in a designated container for him to pick up and refill. Simpler times. If you think about it, that’s susty af, but would probably only work in small towns. So alas, as people moved to bigger cities and populations became denser, the milkman died :(.
OR SO YOU THOUGHT. Unilever is bringing it back baby, with a new system designed to eliminate single use plastic containers around the home. They are collaborating with Loop and TerraCycle to bring this innovative system to you (sometime very very soon!)
Okay, so what is this ‘Loop’ system? It’s basically the milkman, but elevated. With Loop, you’ll be able to order the household products you need (Unilever brands only) and they’ll be delivered to your door in reusable metal/aluminum containers. Brands include Tide, Love Beauty & Planet, Hellmans, Dove, Axe, Haagen Dazs, and more!
This is what it will look like:
Is this a perfect system? Maybe, but probably not. It is however, a step in the right direction. We are so pleased to see a global corporation like Unilever setting higher industry standards. Loop will be available this year in the US and France; stay tuned for more updates!
