Do you have a business or service that contributes to Zero Waste? We are looking for you!
Here are some common questions you may have:
Is there any cost to add my business to the Go Zero Waste app map?
No. Adding your business to our map is free and always will be.
Is it only for bulk stores?
No. The first version only included bulk stores but from the second, we accept a wider range of businesses or services that contribute to Residue Zero.
See the following question for more details.
What types of business or services can be added to the map?
From April 2020 we accept the following list of shops and services on the map:
- Food (markets, bulk stores, consumer communities)
- Beverages (wineries, breweries, dairies and other places where it is sold in bulk or reusable format)
- Cleaning and hygiene (personal hygiene products, cosmetics, cleaning and detergents or cosmetics)
- Home (reused furniture, upcyling, various zero waste products for the home)
- Clothing (second hand, upcycled and accessories)
- Services (repair, reuse, recycling, Green Dots)
- Catering (restaurants, bars, cafes, catering and take away)
- Accommodation (hotels, hostels, campsites, cottages)
How do I add my business to the map?
Very simple. In order to do so, your business is registered with Google MyBusiness as this is the information that the app will display. If you are already registered with Google MyBusiness, all you have to do is fill out this simple registration form (click here to access it).
For any questions or queries, do not hesitate to contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (+34 635 42 51 28).
What information about my business will come out in the app?
All business information that comes out of the app corresponds to what already appears on Google Maps except for the specific list of products you offer.
We do not enter any data, we simply connect the information that already exists from the store to Google Maps through your Google My Business account.
Therefore, in order to add your business to the map, you must be registered in Google My Business and have the account information on hand.
I have an online store. Can I add it to the map?
At the moment the map does not show online stores but if you own one we ask you to register anyway so that we can let you know as soon as possible. Please feel free to fill out the registration form.
For now, no online stores are shown on the map because we are deciding which ways to include them. Physical stores are added using your Google MyBusiness information (which comes out on Google Maps).
Many online stores are not registered with Google MyBusiness because of course they do not always have a physical place to attend, or a business schedule.
However, we know that in the world of Zero Waste online stores do a very important job, reaching places where there are no physical stores and providing products that are harder to find.
That’s why we’re building an online store database to alert you and add you when possible.
One of the possibilities we shuffle is that you sign up for Google MyBusiness at the physical collection points you normally offer for order collection but we are open to suggestions. What we want first of all is to add and help 🙂
Can I add businesses outside of Spain?
Yes. Currently Go Zero Waste app is available for Spain. However, you can add businesses worldwide as long as they have a Google MyBusiness account, because that’s where we get the information.
We are working to make the app available on mobile platforms around the world as soon as possible.
Thanks for your patience. 🙂
Once I add my store, will it automatically appear in the app?
No, it may take us a few days. We must first review the data. We update the stores every two weeks, so you’ll have to wait a few days for us to verify the data and upload it to the server.
We are working to speed up this step as much as possible. Thanks for your patience. 🙂
