New life for On the go packaging

Unfortunately, the trend of increasingly consuming on the go is a behavior that causes littering. Empty packaging, plastic cutlery and other disposable items end up in parks and on beaches despite increased environmental awareness. RISE, together with actors along the entire value chain, are therefore going to identify nodes for increased collection, recycling and reuse of so-called On the go packaging.
