As our packaging has to meet high quality and hygiene standards, it is made from plastic. Unfortunately, at this time, there is no sustainable, lasting, safe and economically viable alternative for us. We therefore recommend recycling our bags, disposing of them with plastic waste. That’s why all our Katjes packaging carries a Grüner Punkt
logo. So they become part of the recycling loop, giving them a new purpose and reducing their impact on the climate and environment to a minimum.
Together with suppliers, Katjes has managed to reduce the use of stretch film used to wrap deliveries by 50% since 2013. We are working to reduce this even further! And in our break room, you will also find new reusable metal bottles for our employees, rather than single-use drinking cups – resulting in a dramatic reduction in plastic waste, a whole 144,000 cups every year!
Overall, we have set ourselves the goal of having to dispose of 10% less waste by 2022 than in 2017.
