As society becomes more environmentally conscious, the effects of our actions on our planet have become a significant concern. One of the major contributors to environmental pollution is urban consumer waste, as people buy products they may only need for a short time, only to discard them shortly after. Hubbub, a technology-enabled rental web platform, is changing the game by providing an alternative that allows consumers to access necessary items without the need for ownership, thus reducing waste significantly.
Founded in New York, Hubbub is providing high customer value by offering an extensive range of rental items, such as mini-fridges, cookware, and other household items, that can be accessed for anywhere between a few days to several months. Hubbub eliminates the need for buying new, by only acquiring its inventory at $0 to low-cost, allowing it to reach its initial target market of college-aged consumers with a viable alternative to buying new items.
Scaling Operations from Dense University Markets
Hubbub’s operations are currently focused on building up their own delivery courier web-app to support their unique operational needs. They are also developing a platform that learns to curate the displayed items to each user’s preferences and scheduling algorithms to minimize the time between the end of one rental period to the start of another. By doing so, Hubbub can offer high customer value in university markets, where consumer needs change frequently.
Providing Eco-friendly and Affordable Rental Solutions
One key aspect of Hubbub’s mission is to provide eco-friendly and more affordable rental solutions to consumers. Hubbub’s rental system reduces consumer waste by eliminating the need for disposable products that would otherwise end up in landfills. According to a report by the Environmental Protection Agency, the US threw away over 292.4 million tons of solid waste in 2018 alone. Hubbub’s model is tackling this problem head-on by providing affordable rental solutions that reduce the amount of waste produced by urban consumers.
Expanding to New Markets and a Sustainable Future
Hubbub is currently focused on developing its platform and expanding to new markets while keeping sustainability at the forefront of all its initiatives. As Hubbub continues to grow, they aim to provide eco-friendly, and affordable rental solutions to a broader range of consumers, thus reducing waste generated by urban consumers.
Hubbub is making significant strides towards reducing urban consumer waste by providing an alternative rental solution to traditional ownership, thus reducing the amount of waste produced. Hubbub’s mission, coupled with its unique model, is sure to leave a significant footprint in the industry and the environment alike.
