今期流行斷舍離,好多人會通過各種各樣的平台,將自己不適合用的東西送給或者賣給別人以騰出心靈和屋企的空間,同時避免物品成為垃圾,減輕堆填區壓力。徵物者也毋須花費金錢購買新的物品。這樣對于贈物者,徵物者和環境可以說是win-win-win 三赢

但是運送問題令人覺得很懊惱。面交會節省快遞成本,但就會有時間和精力成本,花時間約交收,按約好的時間到達交收地點,還有可能遇到有人臨時取消面交,真是讓一群有心人很氣餒。可能儲物櫃容易有保安,衛生,法律和責任問題問題, 所以一般地鐵站內或者附近沒有儲物櫃可以寄存 (紅磡火車站的電子儲物櫃除外)。而選擇郵寄的話,就要包裝物品然後去郵局寄出。順豐等快遞公司的到付服務比較方便, 但對於徵物者, 成本比較高,不是所有物品都值得利用這些快遞公司運送,另外由於沒有當面檢查物品,需要承受貨不對辦的風險。而對於贈物者, 需要承受由於徵物者沒有收取物品而被快遞公司收費的風險。

有沒有一種物流方法可以又方便又便宜?一個寄存与快遞配對平台就此萌生。CubicFree, 贈物者和徵物者可以到指定的店家寄存和收取物品,經招募的上班一族順路幫忙運送物品。還特別配置可重用的快遞袋,毋須預先包裝物品,直接把物品放進快遞袋就可以了。既減少包裝垃圾又方便。

此外,平台還會協助一些放上平台一段時間仍然沒有人要的物資,集合起來並捐贈給慈善團體或有需要既人

Danshari becomes more and more popular culture. It is closely relative to minimalism and zen-buddhist ideals of detachment from possessions – a reaction to mainstream materialiam in contemporary modern society. Many people will free or sell their unnecessary stuff to the public via various platforms. The stuff will not become the waste so that the burden of landfill could be released. The Receiver can save the money from buying the new stuff. This is definitely a win-win-win solution!

However, the current logistic solutions make people frustrated. Existing solutions include face-to-face handover and the traditional courier service. When choosing face-to-face handover, people have to make an agreed time and location to meet up. It is not always easy to make it and no show may occur even though the appointment is made. There is no locker for storage near or in the MTR. When adopting the courier service. The Receiver shall pay for the delivery fee in advance (e.g. bank transfer), the Giver will wrap and send the stuff by post/ SF Express. It is very inconvenient. In the meanwhile, it will also generate a lots of packaging waste! 

Can we step forward and make it easier and lower cost to pass the useful stuff from one to another? Just thinking how many people go to work every day in Hong Kong. Can we ask them for help to pick up when they go to work or off work? That is how the idea comes out. CubicFree is to build up a bridge among the Giver, the Receiver, the Shop and the Public who wants to offer their help. Besides, the reusable delivery bag will be adopted to omit the packaging waste!

In addition, the platform will also help to collect and donate the stuff which has been post for a long time to the charity and people who need.
