Our contribution for a green future.
It ensures that customers always have the liquidity they require, helps to avoid plastic waste and is IoT-capable – the umdasch Liquid Dispenser takes the reduction of CO2 and climate protection seriously, because 500 refills per month save almost 2 tonnes of plastic waste.* In addition, a calculation has shown: Within a very short space of time the system undercuts conventional disposable off-the-shelf bottles with regard to its carbon footprint. From 120 filling procedures of washing-up liquid or detergent in refillable containers, this type of refilling at the POS is more climate-friendly than the purchase of conventional disposable containers with the same content.
* This result is based on the following calculation: Average 500 refills per month x 65 g (per bottle) x 12 months x 5 years = 1,950 kg of plastic waste saved.
Refilling. The successful format for the POS.
Recycling plastics is good, but preventing waste in the first place is even better. The Liquid Dispenser from umdasch is a technically sophisticated system for refilling liquids that, for the first time, also enables large retail chains to offer an efficient refilling service for reusable packaging. Thanks to its integrated technology, the Liquid Dispenser is easy to operate.
And this is how it works: Refilling with the Liquid Dispenser is customer-friendly, drip-free and simple. The first bottle is purchased in the regular way. As soon as the contents have been used up, the empty product packaging is rinsed and dried well and taken back to the shop with the Liquid Dispenser. You just scan the code on the product packaging you have brought along with you and start the filling process – the Liquid Dispenser does everything else. Accurately made to measure, clean and hygienic.

Small footprint, big impact
Fuelled by the mega-trend of neo-ecology, the Liquid Dispenser makes it possible to avoid plastic in advance. In addition, refilling saves 2,260 kg of CO2 equivalent over a period of use of five years and 500 fillings per month. This corresponds to the climate-relevant impact of a car after 12,000 kilometres – and hence more than an average Austrian citizen drives during an entire year.
These calculations are based on the carbon footprint calculation commissioned by umdasch, which provides information on the total greenhouse gas emissions caused during the entire product life cycle of the Liquid Dispenser. The carbon footprint calculation was performed by the sustainability experts at c7-consult and takes into account production, transport (delivery, assembly, service), operation with electricity from hydropower, maintenance and disposal of the Liquid Dispenser, the reusable product packaging and the bag-in-box packaging as product containers.
The Liquid Dispenser has already received the German Innovation Award and the Green Product Award for its innovative character and contribution to environmental protection. These awards underline its relevance in the field of sustainability.
Furthermore, umdasch is a member of Zero Waste Austria, an association that offers a central platform for packaging-free store concepts and is committed to the sustainable use of our resources and waste avoidance. With this commitment, umdasch The Store Makers takes a stand for a green future.
Consumers are ready
The Store Makers of umdasch are pioneers in the field of refilling systems and have obtained clear results in a study in the DACH region with more than 1,000 participants: 92% of the respondents stated that they would rather refill than throw away – if the possibility existed. Different products, such as detergents and cleaning agents as well as body care products, were considered suitable by the participants. It is particularly important to the customers that the dispensing of the product is uncomplicated and above all hygienic.
