Reuse and Recycle in eBusiness
By Rose Salas

BT 201910 E BIZ 13The “Reduce-Reuse-Recycle” initiative is a joint effort by all households, schools, businesses, and every community to preserve the environment and avoid excessive pollution. One major contributor of wastes in the environment are retail stores, which use plastics and extravagant paper wraps in their packaging. In eBusiness, millions of tons of plastics are consumed yearly, such as plastic bubble wraps, boxes, and thick boards to ensure that the products will be delivered in good condition, without any damage or leaks.
 

Since the development of internet technology, eBusiness came sprouting non-stop. Because of this, there are millions of electronic devices like mobile phones, desktop computers, laptops, and tablets that become obsolete or disposed of each year. We call these things as “e-waste,” or electronics and gadgets that reached the finish line of their lifespan. With the increasing disposal rate of e-wastes, million metric tons of these electronics were gathered per year. Almost 90% of these wastes go into landfills. However, dumps are not helpful when it comes to proper recycling of e-wastes. By adequately recycling them, various metals can be recollected, which helps in the prevention of environmental pollution and saving of natural energy.
 

“减少 - 再利用 - 再循环”倡议所有家庭,学校和企业共同努力保护环境。环境中废物的主要来源是零售商店,他们在包装中使用塑料和奢侈纸包装。在电子商务行业中,每年消耗数百万吨塑料,如塑料泡沫包装,盒子和厚纸板,用以确保产品交付状况良好,没有任何损坏或泄漏。
 

自互联网技术发展以来,电子产品快速更新迭代。每年都有数以百万计的电子设备,如手机,台式电脑,笔记本电脑和平板电脑被淘汰,这些电子设备已经过时或需要处理掉。随着电子废物处理率的提高,这些废物中有近90%进入垃圾填埋场。通过充分回收它们,可以回收各种金属,这有助于防止环境污染和节约自然能源。
 

What are the Contributions of eBusiness to Reuse and Recycle Products?
电子商务对重复使用和回收的贡献是什么?

BT 201910 E BIZ 02eBusiness use paperless transactions and ads.

Once a customer purchases from a shop, an invoice or receipt is recorded in the account user’s subscription. Instead of printing out their brochures and marketing campaigns, online companies use the internet technology to promote their products. Millions of tons of papers are eliminated annually, because online store owners do not use paper anymore to print out product leaflets, catalogues, order and sales forms. Aside from saving from operational expenses, they help the community to grow greener!
 

使用无纸化交易

一旦客户从商店购买,发票或收据就会记录在帐户用户的订阅中。每年消除数百万吨纸张,因为在线商店所有者不再使用纸张来打印产品传单,目录,订单和销售表格。除了节省运营费用外,它们还有助于社区变得更加环保!

BT 201910 E BIZ 04eBusiness provides project management with Recycle & Reuse Materials Mobile App.

Not many people or even companies have the complete knowledge of how they can recycle and reuse products. For example, there are construction companies who have materials for disposal that can still be used and recycled after a project is completed. What the Mobile App does is, it allows you to list the materials that are available for recycling or reusing. The lists are saved in the Cloud server of the app maker, which can then be printed or emailed to non-profit organization or group you’d like to donate it to. This initiative helped a lot of communities, especially those who receive donations of any kind. There are hundreds of apps available about Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, which can teach even the young kids to be environment-friendly. These apps are both accessible in any Apple or Android gadgets. This greatly helps in reducing waste that causes environmental impacts.
 

移动应用程序为回收和再利用材料提供项目管理

很少人完全了解如何回收和再利用产品。有数百种有关重复使用和回收的应用程序,甚至可以教育幼儿环保。这些应用程序都可以在任何Apple或Android商店中下载。这极大地有助于减少造成环境污染。

BT 201910 E BIZ 05eBusiness use Reverse Logistics.

Reverse logistics is a strategy wherein a company collects and reuse parts of their distributed goods. For example, the courier company UPS allows customers to reuse boxes to ship out items. They even have their own recycling services where they pick up goods and properly dispose it. Telecommunications company now supports this campaign by allowing its consumers to return unused or old smart phones and get discount offers when they purchase a new one. Clothing stores also encourage their patrons to donate old clothes, which they will recycle, and these clothes are turned into All-Recycled Clothing line. With this reverse logistics, a company can not only save in their material costs, but most of all, reduce harmful waste in the environment.
 

逆向物流

逆向物流是一种策略,公司收集和重复使用其货物的一部分。例如,快递公司UPS允许客户重复使用箱子运送物品。电信公司允许他们的消费者返回未使用或旧的智能手机,并在购买新手机时获得折扣优惠。服装店还鼓励他们的顾客捐赠他们将回收的旧衣服,并将这些衣服变成全再生服装系列。通过这种逆向物流,公司不仅可以节省材料成本,而且最重要的是减少环境中的有害物质。
 

How can the eBusiness sector help in the Reuse and Recycle Campaign?
电子商务部门如何帮助重复使用和再循环运动?

There are even more ways on how eBusiness can improve and develop practical ways to reuse and recycle. Here are a few things you need to consider now if you have an online business:
如果您有在线业务,需要考虑以下几点:

BT 201910 E BIZ 06Return and Reuse

Reusable shopping bags became very popular for many years now. You can see them being used by shoppers, especially in grocery stores. Online retailers can use the same concept when sending parcels like what Royal Mail in the UK uses, which is a reusable bag, called Repack. It is an excellent alternative to bubble wraps since the designer made it with a cushion inside. Once delivered, the bag can be returned so it can be reused. This bag can last up to 200 cycles, therefore reducing the use of heavy plastics that can produce a harmful impact on the environment.
 

循环和重复使用

多年来,可重复使用的购物袋变得非常受欢迎。你可以看到它们被购物者使用,特别是在杂货店。在发送包裹时,在线零售商可以使用相同的概念,例如英国皇家邮政使用的包裹,这是一个名为Repack的可重复使用的包装。一旦交付,袋子可以返回,因此可以重复使用。这种袋子可以持续200个循环,因此减少了可能对环境产生有害影响的重塑料的使用。

BT 201910 E BIZ 07Use eco-wraps and packaging materials

Avoid too much use of plastic and paper in your items. Use eco-friendly packaging alternatives when shipping products to your buyers. For example, instead of using plastic bubble wraps when shipping fragile items, use an option like a wrap made of environment-friendly materials, like corrugated cardboard. This cushion paper will replace the use of the traditional bubble wraps and films and protect the delicate items while in transit on delivery. There are plenty of alternatives that you can find like corrugated paper and enclosures, boxes, air pillows, and parcel envelopes, which are made of recycled contents.
 

使用生态包装材料

避免在物品中过多地使用塑料和纸张。将产品运送给买家时,请使用环保包装替代品。例如,在运输易碎物品时,不要使用塑料泡沫包装,而是使用像瓦楞纸板等环保材料制成的包装。您可以找到许多替代品,如瓦楞纸和外壳,盒子,空气枕头和包裹信封,这些信封由再生成分制成。

BT 201910 E BIZ 08No to Styrofoam

When you need loose fills for your packaging, use the biodegradable and eco-friendly loose fill packing peanuts. It is made from non-toxic sources, like wheat and corn starch. It easily dissolves in water, unlike the Styrofoam that releases toxic substances and does not break down easily, causing them to persist in the environment even for many years.
 

拒绝聚苯乙烯泡沫塑料

当您需要松散填充包装时,请使用可生物降解且环保的松散填充包装。它由小麦和玉米淀粉等无毒来源制成。它很容易溶解在水中,不像聚苯乙烯泡沫塑料释放有毒物质而且不易分解,导致它们在环境中持续存在多年。

BT 201910 E BIZ 09Promote and sell eco-friendly products

If you can get and choose a supplier with green alternatives to the product you are selling, it would be a great idea to switch to it. Natural and organic products can keep your buyers away from dangerous, hazardous, or toxic chemicals that can be life-threatening. Your business can help protect and save the environment in many ways and, at the same time, help your buyers become aware of healthy-living as part of a habit and lifestyle. This can set you apart from your competitors and improve the sustainability of your business.
 

推广和销售环保产品

天然和有机产品可以使您的买家远离可能危及生命的有毒化学品。企业可以通过多种方式帮助保护环境,同时帮助买家了解健康生活,这可以使您与竞争对手区分开来,提高业务的可持续性。

BT 201910 E BIZ 10Recycle electronic waste

If you’re an online retail owner, you must be equipped with the latest electronic gadget that you use for your business. You must help in taking care of the environment by reducing e-wastes and recycling them. For example, if the gadgets are already defective and broken, you can search from the Internet of the nearest E-Waste Recycling Drop-Off location in your area. If you are buying or upgrading, you can take advantage of the exchange, and send-back offers from companies like Samsung, Sony, LG, Dell, etc. for your mobile phones, computers, and tablets. If you are generous enough, your old gadgets can also be donated.
 

回收电子废物

如果您是在线零售业主,必须配备用于业务的最新电子产品。您可以通过减少电子废物和增加回收利用来保护环境。例如,如果手机或电脑已经存在缺陷或损坏,您可以从互联网上搜索您所在地区最近的电子废弃物回收地点,将其进行回收。

BT 201910 E BIZ 11Many countries globally are already shifting to eco-friendly packaging systems for their online businesses. Yet, some are still not ready for the transition due to cost or operating expense it will incur, particularly to small scale sellers. However, it will not take a long time for everyone to be in this direction, since we all want to protect the only planet we live in. Soon, even the vehicles that are used for delivering the products will become eco-friendly cars and trucks. This is the future of eBusiness in terms of saving the environment.
 

eBusiness can make a big impact in this 3R campaign. Online sellers can significantly contribute to making people become aware and more conscious about protecting the environment. More often than not, buyers are only concerned about their buying practice, spending, and shopping; but with the efforts that the online community of retailers and shops to take their part in this campaign will give, consumers will soon become eco-friendly enthusiasts. They will realize not only the importance of using biodegradable packaging, but more importantly, patronize brands that will improve the quality of life, protect them from diseases or illnesses, while supporting long life and good health through natural, organic products.
 

全球许多国家已经为其在线业务提供环保型包装系统。然而,由于成本或运营费用,一些人仍然没有为转型做好准备,特别是小规模的卖家。
 

电子商务可以产生重大影响。在线卖家可以帮助人们意识到保护环境。随着零售商和在线商店参与将会促使消费者更快成为环保爱好者。他们不仅要意识到使用可生物降解包装的重要性,更重要的是,光顾品牌将改善生活质量,保护他们免受疾病的影响,同时通过使用天然有机产品促成长寿和健康。
