Our Mission

Join us to tackle one of the worlds most pressing issues: the plastic packaging crisis. 

Every year we consume 30% more resources than the planet can sustain. The world is waking up to the impact of packaging consumption & waves of new legislation are making single use more expensive. Recycling is a waste of time & energy. Reusing packaging has massive potential but it's too expensive for brands to scale.

Again (www.useagain.io) is the supply chain infrastructure for circular packaging. We're building a decentralised network of smart packaging cleaning hubs that collect, clean & return packaging for FMCG brands (we call them 'Clean Cells'). Our innovative model delivers huge water, energy & logistics savings, allowing reuse to compete with single use on price. With stats like these, we're set to create the infrastructure that will change the way the world consumes.

Our Clean Cells are robotic systems that de-label, clean & stack packaging for FMCG brands. Today we have an MVP at our cleaning facility in South London & now need to take the product to the next level. We have ambitious goals to bring significant automation, intelligence, water & energy saving to future generations of the product, allowing us to truly compete & surpass single use packaging.
