Fast Company reports that major brands are planning on using Loop, a zero-waste platform where products are shipped in stainless steel containers that are then picked up and re-used.

Loop, a new zero-waste platform from a coalition of major consumer product companies, will launch its first pilots this year. “While recycling is critically important, it is not going to solve waste at the root cause,” says Tom Szaky, CEO and cofounder of TerraCycle, a company that is known for recycling hard-to-recycle materials, and one of the partners behind the project.
