Siklus aims to be the next generation of sustainable retail by driving refill solutions for single-use plastic sachets and reducing plastic pollution.
P4G has invested US $98,724 in this partnership.
Siklus will set up refill tricycles and vending machines to cut out plastic at the source and focus on low-income consumers by encouraging them to bring their own containers or purchase reusable containers to fit their needs. It is currently exploring a pilot project with Nestle.
The partnership expects to save 160 million sachets with their its approach, which translates to forty million fewer sachets in the ocean. This reduction in plastic use will lead to over USD $2.5 million in cost savings for customers and their families, who represent some of the most economically vulnerable populations in Indonesia.
