New Zealand's Globelet to roll out trackable reusable plastic cups and bottles

New Zealand's Globelet, a leader in reusable plastics (from festival cups to refill stations) is planning to introduce trackable reusable plastics.

By harnessing the power of digitisation, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IOT), its Globelet Cities service works by having smart chips equipped with RFID tagging on reusable cups, bottles and containers across the city. These can then be scanned and connected to the Globelet network so that the company can track them down to wash, dry and distribute back into the market rather than having it go to landfill.

A beta test for cities will be rolling out throughout 2018 at conferences and events. More at The Spinoff.
