JD.com Announces Plans To Expand Sustainable Packaging Program To Customers


Jingdong Mall, also known as JD.com has always been at the forefront of promoting environmental sustainability in business. Last year, the firm launched the Green Stream Initiative, which to date remains one of JingDong’s most significant environmental projects. The main aim of the project was to reduce the negative environmental impacts caused by non-degradable packaging materials through sustainable packaging.

To further enhance the effectiveness of the project, JD.com recently announced that it would be expanding it, so it can now include customers. According to the firm’s statistics, doing so will help save approximately 32.5 RMB annually if only 10% of the orders use this new packaging. What’s intriguing is that this packaging is not only free, but also those who use it will be rewarded with the firm’s Jingdou loyalty points which they can exchange for products in future purchases.

It’s essential to know that each client purchasing Jingdong Mall is required to use this reusable package. Those who choose to use it can do select it on the billing page, and once they receive their order, they will return the package to the delivery personnel, so it can be used to deliver other orders. According to JD.com, this package, alias the green box, can be used to deliver approximately ten orders, thereby enabling Jingdong Mall to achieve sustainable consumption.

This service will first be opened to consumers in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, before being opened to those in Chengdu and five more cities before the end of the month. However, JD.com plans on making the package available for consumers in twenty cities before the end of this year. The company further added that all customers who purchase small and medium-sized packages could receive their orders using the Green Box with the exemption of those who order fresh food from the site.
