Why does Ship Cycle exist?
The current level of waste in the retail sector is shocking. We believe that Ecommerce needs to become more circular.

We empower retailers and consumers to make more conscious return decisions to find new homes for unwanted items.

How is Ship Cycle encouraging sustainability in returns?
Through our sustainable returns initiatives, we provide numerous options for what happens to your returned items besides simply shipping them back to your warehouse.
Reduce your carbon footprint by minimising return journeys and keeping returned stock locally instead of long distance cross-border returns routes.
Our returns portal allows shoppers to print-on-demand, reducing paper waste by about 70%!
(based on the assumption of a 30% return rate)
Retailers can donate returned stock to charity through our Returns Triage Program™ and shoppers can also choose to donate their returns instead of claiming a refund.
As well as recycling packaging materials for future use, we can also arrange for unwanted items to be sent to a recycling centre rather than landfill.
We Sponsor Project Seagrass
Most companies talk about planting trees to help offset their carbon footprint. We sponsor the Seagrass Project.
Approximately two football fields worth of seagrass are lost in the ocean every hour! It is imperative that we protect the seagrass meadows worldwide as many ecosystems rely on them for survival.
Seagrass absorbs more CO2 and releases more oxygen than trees. Planting seagrass is immediate whereas a tree can take many years to grow.
