Rossmann introduces machines for filling bottles with cosmetics

We tend to think that we go shopping with a bag material, more often carry their own cup of coffee. So the time came to a green revolution in the cosmetic industry. The new solution tests the Czech Rossmann. The local drugstores stood machines, allowing fill cosmetics and detergents their own packaging. Instead, every few weeks dispose of the empty bottle and buy new every time you refill the same.

With such automata can significantly reduce the amount of garbage. And going to the drugstore with empty bottles is a matter of habit. An additional advantage is saving money. No longer pay for unnecessary packaging, only the product itself Ranking of beauty sites. Operation of such a device is not different than the use of an ATM or self-service cash. Manual guides you step by step.

In the Czech Rossmann drugstore networks can thus buy dishwashing liquid, washing liquid, fabric softener, shampoo and shower gel popular brands. Does Poland will also own machines for filling bottles? So far, not in the plans. But perhaps in the future, we will also be able to opt out of disposable packaging and buy cosmetics in refillable bottles.

We think it is a really great idea and keep our fingers crossed that quickly came to the Polish. Count yourself, how much less garbage we produce.

Are you curious about how much plastic waste you produce in a year? A lifetime? A large part of them are just packaging cosmetics and cleaning products. The average worldwide is approx. 50 kg per person per year. In Europe alone, it looks a little better – approx. 30 kg but every person in the United States annually produces up to 84 kg of plastic waste.

It is estimated that only 5-10% of global plastic is recycled. More than 30% of which goes to the landfill, and about one-third of the world’s oceans. Swimming garbage is our everyday on vacation, and plastic waste arrives at an alarming pace – alerts the WWF.
