Repact

by Daniel Pelletier, Chad Tetzlaff

In the creation of Repact, we looked into ways to reduce the amount of packaging waste that ends up in both trash and recycling systems, if not on the street itself. The end product was reusable packaging design that both businesses and users can use to eliminate the use of cardboard and other packaging materials. This project began at the start of the Fall 2019 quarter, in IACT 315 - Human Computer Interaction. Tasked with observing the local environment and finding areas that may be improved upon, the team decided to tackle the rising issue of cardboard clutter in the streets.Brought on by the rising tide of online shopping,everywhere you look, there’s no shortage of cardboard and shipping waste, both in recycling bins and out. After researching recycling initiatives, the team decided to face the problem at its core, and propose a solution that could completely eliminate the use of cardboard and various shipping waste. In addition to package design, the Repact service allows for full customization of mailers, so businesses can express their branding and personality in their shipping. This was important to help Repact stand out against possible competitors, and to ensure that businesses did not have to compromise identity for sustainability.
