Every day, the average mega block of apartments and shophouses in Jakarta produces 600 cubic metres of plastic waste. This puts an enormous pressure on the city’s already overwhelmed waste management facilities.
Equipped with smart refill vending machines, Qyos is on a mission to drastically reduce this amount of waste by helping Indonesian households skip single-use plastics with a smart, affordable and accessible alternative.
The reuse venture offers user-friendly refill dispensers that provide residents of apartment buildings with easy access to daily necessities. The product dispensing system eliminates single-use packaging by offering reusable containers that can be rented and refilled with a variety of fast-moving consumer goods, including dishwashing detergent, body soap, and shampoo.
Qyos’s cashless and touchless system uses RFID-integrated packaging, turning each reusable bottle into a digital payment system. Similarly to how a metro card enables cashless entry into the metro system, Qyos’s reusable bottles act as a smart wallet that enables cashless and hassle-free buying.
By providing a reusable alternative to single-use packaging, the Qyos solution lowers the price of daily needs products, helping customers to save money while reducing their household waste by as much as 50 percent. With this business model in place, Qyos aims to lower the price of personal and home care products by replacing single-s packaging with an alternative that’s good for both their wallets and the environment.
