EasyVrac groups in one single online market the whole of Lausanne’s zero waste offer, providing digital visibility to local shops and suppliers, who become partners.
Their products are sold online at the exact same price as at the store. As a customer, you can purchase products from different shops in one single place.
EasyVrac’s team shops for you and delivers your purchase to your home or workplace by electric bike in selected reusable containers: cotton or paper bags, glass or stainless steel jars and bottles. A QR code system enables traceability of containers and recollection once empty, to be washed and reintroduced in the circuit.
Service fees can be paid each time (16%), or replaced by a better priced subscription fee for frequent customers, which also includes a custom sustainable lifestyle coaching session.
Our aim ? Make low-waste living more accessible and inclusive.
Why ? In order to massively reduce waste and make Lausanne a circular economy leader, then replicating the model throughout Switzerland.
Why support us
EasyVrac addresses the need for practical solutions for sustainable consumption through an innovative online market that amplifies existing transition leaders.
Our service makes it easy to adopt new consumption habits thanks to increased visibility and availability of packaging-free products.
These are delivered by electric bike in EasyVrac’s reusable jars and containers, which are then recollected once empty, washed and reused.
Each Swiss person generates on average 700kg of waste every year. Becoming an EasyVrac customer means reducing this amount by at least half, while supporting a local entreprise working out of and for Lausanne.
Despite constant growth in the supply of packaging-free products, changing consumption habits remains a challenge for most consumers. Zero-waste shops are not very well known, dispersed in the urban space and require additional organisation. Moreover, the overall range of available packaging-free products remains limited.
