What is the issue addressed?

We can't just reduce GDP to reduce green gas emission. It is not going to work. We need to change the way we shop. ProximityStore will turn all shoppers into green shoppers by delivering the first e-commerce platform which is 100% sustainable. ProximityStore is a new way to shop. Open ProximityStore and you have the simplest guide to green shopping. All the products on ProximityStore are eco-responsible and ProximityStore will tell you where to find those products the closest to you so you can go by foot! We have more than 50k products on the platforms from vegan shoes to bio soaps.

How is the problem solved?

Over the past 10 months, we have visited hundreds of brick-and-mortar stores in Paris (test city). ProximityStore rely on them : all the products on ProximityStore are coming from brick-and-mortar stores around us. Imagine Amazon with no warehouses but hundreds of micro-warehouses (the brick-and-mortar stores around us). Not only we reduce the carbon footprint of e-commerce but on top of that we revive our communities and contribute to a better social economy.

What is the customer target?

All consumers

How is this solution different?

We deliver 10x faster than Amazon and by bike ! We are beating Amazon to its own game and at the same time, reduce carbon footprint, promote circular economy, develop local communities and propose the only solution that will help the transition of e-commerce to a greener e-commerce.
