Oxfam’s Shelflife links goods with past using QR Codes
Oxfam is trying out a mobile phone scheme called Shelflife that lets customers find out the stories behind second-hand goods it sells.
A Shelflife phone app links stories and pictures provided by donors to tags attached to the goods.
Browsers in Oxfam shops can scan the tags using the app to find out about an individual item’s past.
