Workshop: “How to give our bottle a second life”


After a very successful first workshop last year in Berlin, we were pleased to organize a second workshop for our members on the 4th of February in Prague. Under the name “How to give our bottles a second life”, participants had the chance to hear presentations from different speakers who work in their segment towards a stronger Circular Economy: Producers, recyclers, collection and sorting schemes, deposite refund schemes and EPRS.

The message and conclusion that EFBW members sent out was clear: “We stay a reliable partner to strengthen the Circular Economy. The producers of natural mineral water and spring water have pledged already last year to push for a collection of 90% of PET bottles by 2025 and use at least 25% of rPET by 2025.”

We want to thank all the speakers for making this workshop a success and fueling some passionate debates: EXPRA - Extended Producers Responsibility Alliance, Infinitum AS, ALPLA, EPRO - European Association of Plastics Recycling & Recovery Organizations and TOMRA.
