Abandoned shopping carts pose a substantial problem in today's society:

  • They pollute the environment with decaying metal, plastic, and rubberized material
  • They create a physical hazard
  • Abandoned carts create an eyesore and nuisance

These carts have hidden costs as well:

  • Increased carbon footprint in making (buying) new carts
  • Stores invest in expensive technologies to keep carts from wandering
  • Stores buying replacements mean increased operating costs, which can get passed on to the customer
