Sustainability at the Forefront
Sustainability has never been more important. The pandemic, war and politics remind us of the fragility of our world, reaffirming our need to protect the health of both people and the planet. That’s why it’s no surprise that in the wake of crises, businesses and industries alike are taking active steps toward a more sustainable future. And it’s not just because it’s the right thing to do, it’s what today’s consumers have come to expect.
But where do vending machine operators fit into the sustainability equation? And how can they adapt to meet evolving industry standards and the needs of environmentally conscious consumers?
Making Vending More Planet-Friendly
Traditional vending solutions have come a long way in recent years, with today’s smart machines offering everything from freshly brewed self-service coffee to cosmetics, clothing, PPE and everything in between. But alongside advances in vending technology, a green revolution has also been taking place, challenging operators to reexamine the environmental impact of their products and their machines.
From increasing the energy efficiency of their equipment to offering more eco-friendly products, operators are doing their part to ensure cleaner, greener vending operations. And, we can all do more. Adding packaging that is easier to recycle or is biodegradable. Keeping vending machines cleaner with touchless payment options. Providing customers with recycling options near them. And, upgrading machines to more environmentally friendly refrigerants.
