Making re-use possible: 1000 partner shops

Our bulk liquid distribution solution Jean Bouteille at La Voisine in Nantes

At Jean Bouteille, we believe that in order to bring about changes in the consumption of the French, we must be present at every moment of their consumption. "The best waste is the one we don't produce". Bulk sales and reuse allow us to change the way we consume, and this means making them accessible in all distribution channels: supermarkets, bulk stores, organic shops, local shops or even brands!

Collection and Recycling
of the BIB bag

Through our Bag in Box Recycling program , we collect BIB from retailers and send them to a recycler. Our goal is to create the first Bag in Box recycling channel

We enable our products to be zero waste not only for the consumer but also for our partner bulk shops.

This initiative was awarded the Natexpo 2021 Gold Trophy in the services category.



Make consumers the drivers of change!

Carole and her family's commitment to an eco-responsible lifestyle

We are convinced that the mobilisation of citizens and the small gestures of each individual can make a difference! Since the beginning, our consumers have helped us to grow.

With our bulk products served in reusable containers, consumers can take action on a daily basis and limit their environmental impact with each refill .

We are also keen to take their needs and expectations into account during our product campaigns by consulting them at all stages of our projects.

Helping to grow
the zero waste sector

Gérard Bellet, founder of Jean Bouteille, pitches at the ChangeNow 2020 Summit

We do not hesitate to join working groups to develop the ecosystem and draw up the sector's codes. It is with all the players that we will succeed in structuring and developing the bulk sector.

For example, we participated in the work on the DDM launched by Réseau Vrac to adapt the shelf life of organic products in bulk.

Recently, we also launched  our webinars to advise entrepreneurs committed to zero waste in the framework of the Tous au Vrac call for projects.
