Concept

Jean Bouteille associates two modes of ecological consumption to save the consumer money : the bulk system and the returnable bottle system.

 

With an innovative approach of local sources, our economic model allows offers a high quality, low cost product with a very low environmental footprint while increasing the purchasing power of the consumer at the same time.

Jean Bouteille equips your store with a liquid dispensers containing a variety of oil (olive oil, sunflower oil…), wines (rosé and red wine) and vinegars (balsamic vinegar and cider vinegar) as well as the cleaned bottles. Once a week, Jean Bouteille replaces the used, dirty bottles, by a new one.

Thanks to Jean Bouteille, customers can save money, reduce their waste and are free to choose the quantity they’d like.

 

A LITTLE HISTORY

The way our society focuses on consumption today leads us to a dead end as too much waste is produced.

To reverse this trend, Jean Bouteille was created in 2014. Its goal is to allow us to consume liquid product without wasting. It-is finally possible!

To accomplish this, the innovative firm born in 2014 brought back the returnable bottle system and combined it with the bulk sale system.

Waste reduction

Minimization of waste at its source to minimize the quantity required to be treated and disposed of, achieved usually through better product design and/or process management. The reduction of waste is the first motivation behind the concept Jean Bouteille. We aim to allow the consumption of liquid products without having to throw away the bottle. This reduction of waste is the original motivation behind the concept Jean Bouteille.

Produce Service System

Is a business model, developed in academia, that is aimed at providing sustainability of both consumption and production. Product Service Systems are when a firm offers a mix of both products and services, in comparison to the traditional focus on products. Jean Bouteille allows consumers to utilize the bottle multiple times rather than buying multiple bottles. One does not have to pay for the manufacturing and destruction of the bottle, only its use.

Biodegradable wash and sterilization

All the bottles are washed and sterilized by processes biodegradable. The used cleaner is certified Ecocert. It is biodegradable and contains no oil by-products or chemical additives. The sterilization of bottles uses a process of electro music-activation of the water to generate of Anolyte Neutre. This solution is 100% biodegradable and harmless to humans while quickly eliminating bacteria, fungus, and viruses.

Self-service dispenser is a piece of equipment technologically enabled to allow the blockage of a liquid in a clean, secure and moderate way.

Returnable bottles

Returnable bottles are intended to be taken back to the place they came from so that they can be used again. All the bottles used by Jean Bouteille are glass silk-screened and designed to resist more than 30 washes. The lock is a mechanical cork.
