Describes whether a place (shop, restaurant or similar) offers reusable containers to their customers.

What is reusable packaging?

Reusable containers have to be strong enough to be really usable multiple times, e.g.:

  • a glass jar
  • a ceramic mug
  • a strong-plastic box, bowl or cup
  • a fabric bag

Paper bags, plastic bags and single-use plastic bottles are not considered strong enough to be reusable.

A reusable container can either be a deposit (customer purchases the container and gets the money back when bringing it back), or something like a glass jar that the customer doesn't have necessarily to bring back but that could be reused for another shop or purpose.
