|摘要: ||A huge portion of waste that is contributing to the exponential growth of garbage cramming our landfills come from single-use plastic tubes and bottles used to package bath and skincare products. Plastic pollution is amongst the world’s biggest environmental issues that we are only now beginning to address. Pioneers in the movement against the haphazard use of plastic are slowly gaining momentum with zero-waste initiatives from which the concept of selling products without their plastic packaging is born.
An equally alarming concern in the bath and skin care industry is the use of toxic chemical ingredients in most commercial products which have proven to harm not only our skin but also our health. In this regard, international agencies are helping consumers determine toxin-free, natural alternatives through labelling and certification.
Aiming to be at the forefront of the zero-waste movement in Asia, this business plan looks into the feasibility of establishing STOR, a refillery-concept chain store for natural bath and skin care products. Doing away with the intrusion and waste of branded single-use packaging, STOR intends to operate by making use of large dispensaries from which consumers are able to fill and refill their own containers with all-natural products from an array of options produced only with nature’s best botanicals.
