At present, the legislative process of the preparation of the new Waste Act, the Act on Selected End-of-Life Products and the amendment to the Packaging Act are in progress. However, further legislative amendments will have to be prepared before the entry into force of these regulations, in the context of the Directive on the limitation of the environmental impact of certain plastic products. The presentation will present the most important changes to the legislation currently under preparation, as well as the basic regulations that will have to be newly introduced precisely in connection with the directive on the reduction of plastic consumption.

Packaging in the context of sustainability in 21st century

Sustainability of packaging is one of the fragments of sustainability of the whole economic activity of producers of packaged goods. One of the tools is ecodesign as an effort to optimize packaging and its impact on waste management or the environment. At the same time, the basic functions of the packaging should not be overlooked.
At the same time, it is important to be aware of how the used packaging is actually handled. Sometimes, in an effort to change quickly and due to the lack of knowledge of packaging manufacturers, the promotion of such solutions, which at first sight appealing, may have an even worse impact than the original solution.

Well designed packaging will increase the value of the product, brand, differentiate you from the competition and, last but not least, open the way to new customers. It doesn’t have to be complicated – if you realize it in time and find a partner who has a similar view.

More than just a pad

Not an interleaving as an interleaver – when you combine a simple leading and a hand-stacked tray, a subtle stabilizing element for transport is created. Thanks to it, during transport, it is possible to protect goods from falling off the pallet. At the same time, sufficient air circulation is required to cool the ripened cheeses. Whole
In addition, the concept contributes to a better economic solution as more goods are transported on the pallet.

Safe packaging for export

Except for water, gas and oil in pipelines, gravel, ore and coal on wagons and trucks, everything else is packaged. From medicines to food and beverages, but also consumer goods including detergents, toys, clothing and shoes, of course electronics, car parts, to machine tools and nuclear reactors. The key function of the packaging is to protect the packaged items. Unsuitable packaging brings direct and often significantly more indirect costs to the goods manufacturer. Direct are linked to damage or destruction of goods, indirect depends on the terms of the commercial contract: for example, damage from stopping the production line. Let’s see how to choose the right packaging supplier to eliminate damage in the transport chain due to inappropriate packaging.

Introducing reusable packaging into e-shop logistics

Buying online generates a lot of waste from disposable shipping containers. The biggest Czech e-shop Alza.cz is trying to solve this situation and in cooperation with the new startup Repetebox started to test reusable transport packages. They are even made of old Alza advertising banners, which would otherwise become waste. What does such testing look like? What does the e-shop have to do to get started with testing? What is the potential of reusable shipping packaging in e-commerce? All this will be the subject of our presentation.
