Online shopping impacts the environment:

Online shopping deliveries are significant contributors to CO2 emissions, pollution, and wasted products.

  • Returns

    "In the U.S. alone, Statista estimates return deliveries will cost $550 billion by 2020, 75.2% more than four years prior. Worse, that number doesn’t include restocking expenses for inventory losses. Nailing down exact numbers on return rates is notoriously difficult" [Shopify]
  • Air pollution 

    "Hauling around returned inventory in the UScreates over 15 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually…That’s more than what 3 million cars might put out in one year." [Verge]
  • Waste issue

    "Five billion pounds of returned goods end up in landfills each year. Even if something was in good condition when the buyer put it in the mailbox, shipping it back can damage the item. Sometimes retailers realize that throwing out a returned item is the most cost-effective way to deal with the thing, instead of paying for it to be cleaned, repaired,and returned to the shelves." [Verge]
Technology barriers make compelling product pages difficult to curate & understand

Despite the efforts and costs that go into curating ecommerce sites, return rates of ecommerce are still significantly higher than brick-and-mortor.

Online shopping has been an isolated experience – we’re changing the status quo.

When we have seen the rise of virtual meetings, events, dates how come there hasn’t been a virtual and social way to shop online?  

At Qhanu, our mission is to sustainably empower people by reimagining product experiences.
