SPAR Online Shop goes green with digital delivery notes and recycled paper packaging

SPAR is expected to save 3 tonnes of paper by only providing digital delivery notes to online store purchases. Another novelty: the paper packaging used for previous deliveries can be returned to the deliverymen for recycling by the company.

The SPAR online retail channel receives hundreds of orders on average each day, and so far the company used printed delivery notes. This accounts to more than 3 tonnes of paper every year, typically put out to waste bins or sorted waste boxes. The Hungarian retail chain has introduced numerous environmentally-conscious measures throughout the last years. These now include the new initiative of only providing digital delivery notes to orders, which will be available in the “My Orders” (Rendeléseim) menu of the online shop, and also provided to customers as attachment to the confirmation e-mail.

In order to further cut paper waste, SPAR introduces another measure: shoppers can now return online shop paper bags from previous online orders to the deliverymen. The return of used paper bags ensures that the waste is forwarded to sorted waste treatment facilities.

Customers can now order from the SPAR Online shop knowing that they will not receive unnecessary paper documents and that they can return the paper packaging materials used at the next delivery.
