Podcast episode #4 – Plastic free groceries with Michael May from Lyfa.ch
In this episode we’ll have a look at Lyfa, a startup based in Basel, which offers a plastic free groceries and delivery. Michael May, the co-founder of Lyfa explains how their venture offers a sustainable alternative for doing groceries, while delivering your order right to your doorstep.
The benefits of Lyfa’s model for plastic free groceries
First of all, you can order your groceries comfortably in an online store. Secondly, the goods are delivered by bike in reusable containers. Therefore, removing the plastic packaging from your order entirely. Last but not least, because the containers are reusable, Lyfa collects them again and sanitizes them for your next order.
You don’t have to worry about the storage, nor the plastic waste. That is how groceries of the future will be done!
Lyfa is in its very early stage and looking for people who can help develop the business to the next level. If you want to support Lyfa financially, the startup will start a crowdfunding campaign very soon. We’ll post the link to their crowdfunding campaign as soon as it is online. In the meantime, check Lyfa’s website regularly for more information.
Update from 20.12.2019:
Lyfa successfully raised funds in the crowdfunding campaign to incorporate and bring their startup to the next level! Congratulations!
