Packaging must consist of a single component whose recycling channel is widely spread and easily accessed by the target users. Directions (text or explicit logo) clearly encourage recycling.
Paper and cardboard packaging must contain minimally 70% recycled finer.
Use of bioplastic: the composability (biodegradability) of the bioplastics must comply with one of the indicated standards, or equivalent.
- MAXBOX VR DECLARATION: Our packaging is safe and used to protect the product during the shipping process
Cannot confirm entirely: Multiple packaging used e.g. DHL cardboard boxes. Not all boxes have text to encourage recycling, but can be requested.
