Judging by shifting consumer trends, especially the preferences of younger consumers,  you can bet the sustainable notions of commerce are moving ever more to the forefront of retail.

Sustainable Delivery

Centered around sustainability, delivery is a big area for innovation. It promises to get bigger and more important as the sustainability trend evolves.

Startups are offering grocery deliveries through reusable containers and bicycles, to help consumers to order produce and household staples in an environmentally friendly way. 

Tamara Lim, founder of  The Wally Shop, told PYMNTS in an interview,  “Wally Shop is a grocery delivery service that uses entirely reusable packaging that’s picked back up again for reuse. The eco-friendly service is “a whole new way to essentially shop without having to compromise on convenience or selection or price.”

 The Wally Shop charges a deposit on each unit of packaging that it uses, as part of its environmental sustainability efforts, In the future, the customers can receive that deposit back in the form of store credit.
