Startup Develops First RFID Pooling System for Cosmetics
One Startup Against the Surge of Plastic According to the WWF, people create 200 million tons of plastic waste every year. “Without me!” is the response of startup founder Steffanie Rainer, who is fighting plastic waste with a sustainable pooling system for cosmetics bottles. With HF RFID-tagged bottles, a self-developed refill station with an RFID reader from FEIG Electronic and IT services and an overall concept from avus Services, a plastic-free product lifecycle is created. At present, the system is used in five supermarkets in southern Germany.
