Boxon starting pilot sustainability project

Starting in June, Big Bag users can drop FIBC (= Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers) purchased from Boxon free-of-charge at the countrywide collection centers of German company RIGK. The purpose of this partnership is to allow companies to use this return service without having to manage a system of their own. Due to a license that allows using the RIGK symbol, companies need not enter a contract with RIGK. This requires merely that the Big Bags to be disposed of were purchased from Boxon and that the users of the packaging have opted to use this return service. A monitoring system will prevent misuse of the RIGK symbol.

Additional measures

This recycling offer is part of a portfolio of sustainable service offers. These include FSC-certified packaging, degradable padded envelopes made of bio plastics, which are used in the E-commerce sector, as well as reduced resource use due to the use of stretch films. Furthermore, the company says it has been able to actively offset CO2 since 2018. In analogy with this, the Big Bag recycling system uses packaging weight for pricing, divided into three price categories.
