Reusing 10% of plastic packaging will Stop Almost Half of Plastic Waste From Entering the Ocean (World economic Forum 2021)
by theory anything that you use several time reduce the need to produce more.
circular economy model follow this definition and also have others benefits:
Environmental impact of reusable
The long life of a single reusable packaging item eliminates hundreds of single-use packaging items from entering the landfill, reducing solid waste by up to 86%.
Lower CO2 emissions
Reusable packaging eliminates the need to recycle or remanufacture single use packaging, reducing CO2 (greenhouse gas) emissions by up to 60%
Lower energy consumption
The energy used to manufacture reusable packaging items is up to 64% lower than is required to manufacture and recycle the single-use packaging items.
Materials recovery and reuse
Reusable models are truly circular, recovering packaging at the end of its useful life so that materials can be recycled and used to produce new reusable packaging.
Cost saving of reusable packaging
Designed to optimize both manual and mechanical handling (i.e. forklifts), reusable packaging reduces the time needed to perform supply chain activities.
Standardized designs optimize stacking efficiency, for higher transport and storage space utilization - both empty and filled with product.
Lower packaging costs
The extended life of reusable packaging (measured in years) results in lower cost per use than single-use packaging.
Sale growth with reusable
Whether in-store or online, consumers are increasingly looking for low and zero waste packaging options to reduce waste. By using reusable packaging, retailers send a clear message of their commitment to the environment to their shoppers.
