Galaxus ends the packing frenzy!

Less packing madness

Digitec Galaxus kappt die Plastic-Schlange

Online sellers use tons of plastic to secure their goods in transit. A corresponding amount of waste is generated. Digitec Galaxus now wants to reduce this waste.


This bike pump was sent by Digitec Galaxus in a large package.

Online shopping is booming. And it creates a lot of waste. Lots of cardboard. But also a lot of plastic. It is particularly energy-intensive to produce and difficult to recycle. Internet retailer Digitec Galaxus also contributed to the mountain of waste in the past. For example, a simple bicycle pump was wrapped in 15 meters of plastic and shipped.

This packaging madness should be over by now. According to a press release, Digitec Galaxus now ships its packages in nine sizes to match the range. The environment and customers and logistics employees would benefit from this. Because: 28 percent less air is sent with each package. This means that more parcels can fit in the delivery. And the package is more likely to be in the mailbox.
