REUSE AND REFILL MODELS
With waste from single-use foodservice packaging contributing to greenhouse gas emissions and filling landfills every year, reuse and refill models offer a viable alternative to single-use––providing more durable options that can be used multiple times.
Reuse models move us away from a take, make, waste model of material usage, toward a circular economy in which goods and materials are reused and repurposed. Not only is it good for the planet––it’s good for business too. Converting 20% of global disposable plastic packaging into reusable packaging is a $10 billion opportunity.
And while reusable packaging is already well underway, it’s just the beginning. Reuse and refill models are poised for an even bigger future, with the potential for impact across multiple sectors and industries, laying the groundwork for a more circular future.
