EBay and Ocado, two major business models in the UK, and for EBay infact, a worldwide operation, have received awards from the OnLine Green Retail Awards (OLGAs) recently, which was held at Kensington Roof Gardens in London.
EBay of course, impressed the judges with it’s impact worldwide, making throwing unused products away, a thing of the past, and creating a recycling for cash marketplace.
EBay is currently based in California, and it’s claim as the largest online marketplace, most probably is correct, as it has 84 million users on a global scale, 14 million of those, active from UK addresses.
Credit where it is due, Ocado have definitely stepped up their game and now actively construct deliveries and grocery bag distribution with an eco friendly structure.
Ocado started out in London, just eight years ago, and now receives, processes, packs and deliveries over 12,000 orders a day, now occupying a 24 acre site in Hatfield.
Home Delivery Network, we’re also commended for their efforts, the UK’s biggest delivery network, conducts around 300,000 deliveries a day, and with certain eco friendly strategies in place, have managed to make a positive impact, as well as setting an example for other delivery companies.
Other companies receiving awards included Kelkoo and Dixons, both pioneers in their field.
