We have developed a framework to quantify the landfill area reclaimed and carbon emissions avoided during stock acquisition. We have calculated that so far we have avoided 1.19 tonnes CO2e and 380 metres cubed of landfill volume.
- At stocs, we prolong the lifecycle of goods by taking liquidated stock, much of which would go directly to landfill.
- The US EPA has estimated that roughly 42% of all greenhouse emissions are caused by the production and use of goods.
- Zero waste is the conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse and recovery of products and materials without burning and with no discharges to land, water or air that threaten the environment or human health.
- We are still in our infancy but have already launched in the US and Europe after securing 1.2 million retail products for resale. This has reduced the volume of landfill by 380 cubic metres.
