hear it from them

A Friendlier Company’s reusable container program is an excellent idea. Charging a deposit for a product ensures proper recycling and reuse. The app is well designed and easy to use, scanning the QR code on the container and placing in the return box to be picked up is hassle free. Doing the right thing for the environment has never been so easy.
