Talk:Proposed features/reusable packaging
Very keen to see this adopted by the community! Thinking about creating a sustainability-focused renderer, and that kind of information would be very useful to have in the database. Thanks for writing the proposal. Chtfn (talk) 12:45, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
Discount for using own container?
In the UK, it's fairly common for cafes to offer a discount of around 10% to people who use their own container for takeaway drinks. Is this something that could be mapped? Ecatmur (talk) 13:27, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
- The discount could also be in the form a a fixed amount, so we should allow for values like '0.10 EUR' as well. There are also some vending machines that offer 'up to 30% more content' when using your own cup. On the othet hand, I'm not fully convinced that we need to have that much detail. a simple reusable_packaging:discount=yes/no should be sufficient in most cases.
In my opinion it could be really difficult to fill and maintain discounts on products as in most of the time it's really temporary. Also I'm not sure that the goal of OpenStreetMap is to store commercial information such as discounts even if it could be a way to encourage people to reduce their waste rendering this data on a map.

Only for some product
- I guess it's quite obvious that not all products sold can be put to own containers. We could allow for more detailed values instead of yes/no, e.g. * = cheese;milk Mueschel (talk) 08:10, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
Maybe we could simply do the difference using `only` if all products are concerned, and `yes` if only some of the products are concerned. This provides less information than precising the product that are concerned by the possibility to use our own containers but it's much more simpler to fill and maintain.
