Embracing the Green Side: Why Sustainability in Ecommerce is not simply a nice to have!
Sustainability isn’t just a modern day buzzword; it’s a concept that can transform the world of online shopping!
82% of shoppers want brands to embrace sustainable and people-first practices, and Gen-Z is leading the charge, reports intelligence and analytics platform Talkwater.
By prioritising sustainability in your ecommerce business, you can minimise your ecological footprint and connect with a burgeoning generation of consumers, thereby fuelling your business growth.
Click & Collect ticks the right boxes for environmentally conscious consumers.
Many home deliveries fail on the first attempt, meaning that drivers have to use more fuel to return to the same location. But with Click & Collect there are no missed deliveries. Shoppers can simply walk to their nearby Pargo Point and collect their order.
With Click & Collect, South African ecommerce businesses and consumers can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of their online orders.
Pargo’s sustainable packaging is recyclable and fully biodegradable. Compared to other paper alternatives, the packaging features superior tensile strength and flexibility.
Ecommerce businesses that adopt eco-friendly packaging and shipping options will win over consumers and in turn prove that “sustainable” and “economically profitable” are not mutually exclusive concepts.
