reCIRCLE takeaway containers
The reCIRCLE business model, originally developed in Switzerland, offers a deposit return system (DRS) for restaurants, grocery stores or individuals based on reusable utensils and packaging for “food-to-go”. The company evaluates the environmental savings made thanks to the use of its products, and communicates these to the public.
This user-friendly system with reusable boxes has now been adopted in Germany, France, Belgium, Czech Republic and Ireland. See the Switzerland section of this catalogue for more details on the scheme.
