5th European ReUse Conference
The European Association of Beverage Wholesalers (CEGROBB), the German Environmental Aid (Deutsche Umwelthilfe) and the Association of Small and Independent Breweries in Europe (S.I.B.) are hosting the 5th European ReUse Conference to discuss the importance of refillable packaging for a vital circular economy. Refillables serve as a model for ambitious waste prevention strategies and recycling quotas all over Europe – and might have a special importance in setting a path for the upcoming Circular Economy Package.
Convincing arguments for reusable packaging
Considering the European waste hierarchy, reusable packaging meets all the requirements for being the most sustainable packaging by standing for waste prevention. After their return, refillable bottles are cleaned, refilled and reused up to 50 times. Therefore, there is no need to produce a new single-use bottle or can for every beverage bottled. Using refillable bottles is an active contribution to climate and resource protection. They are of high importance for a vital circular economy and serve as a model for ambitious waste prevention strategies and recycling quotas all over Europe. Due to all of these reasons, refillable packaging must have a high influence in setting a path for the revised Circular Economy Package.
