Project description

English EN

A solution for online retail’s packaging waste

Online retail is on the rise in the EU but so is the amount of packaging thrown away. Only half of the packaging material is recycled. As a result, e-commerce packaging is unpacking a huge problem. Reusability and recycling of all packaging is a requirement of the European Strategy for Plastics in Circular Economy. The EU-funded Reuse as a service project is proposing a solution based on a data and logistics platform. It will recover empty packaging under recompensing. The service is cost-effective and already tested on a small-scale in an operational environment. The project expects this repack solution to replace single-use packaging.
