A little bit about us

Who we are

We’re an impact-driven business based in Vancouver that supplies, sanitizes, and tracks reusable containers for events, cafés, restaurants, and other food & beverage businesses. 

What we do

At ShareWares, the core of our business is innovation within a city's existing infrastructure to create a localized sustainable circular ecosystem.

 

To do this, we created a comprehensive platform, including an advanced washing service for reusable containers, a supporting app for businesses and customers to easily adopt reusables, and product development consulting to assist businesses in transitioning to reusable products and packaging.

Interior of a Cafe

Our goal is to make reusable containers convenient and accessible so that they become the default choice for all packaging selection. 

Our why

We imagine a different kind of future by 2030. One where your home, neighbourhood, and city have been transformed to a circular economy where products are designed for reuse again and again.

You’re spending more time enjoying activities you love, and products are well-designed to create less waste. Enjoy a live Canucks game or a quiet night at home while knowing you are helping your community and our beautiful planet. 

Our mission & vision

Our mission is to help Vancouver have less waste in our landfills each year by eliminating problematic or unnecessary plastic packaging through redesign, innovation, and new delivery models.

 

Our vision is a city-wide reusable container program for all restaurants, cafes, and anchor institutions in Vancouver. 

 

We challenge YOU, your business, and your community to choose reusable containers over single-use containers where they are offered.
