EPPA: SINGLE-USE PAPER-BASED PACKAGING IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

11-07-2022

A new study commissioned by the European Paper Packaging Alliance (EPPA) shows that reusable packaging in takeaway services would be more burdensome for the environment than continuing to use single-use paper-based packaging.

As the European Commission prepares to propose a revision of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive, this new study shows that reuse systems impose additional burdens to the environment when compared to single-use, related to additional washing, take-back transportation and breakage, as well as unit loss associated with takeaway.

 

Commenting on this meta-study assessment, Eric Le Lay, President of the European Paper Packaging Alliance (EPPA), said: “Single-use containers are far more practical for food delivery services and their customers, improving hygiene and convenience, and simply perform better on key environmental metrics. We call on the European Commission to take this evidence into account in the upcoming Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive revision.”
