At the end of June, ACR+ member Paris launched the “Paris 10 s'emballe” project, which aims to put an end to the use of single-use packaging in fast food restaurants. Fifty restaurants and 10 small supermarkets in the 10th district have taken up the challenge by replacing this everyday waste with sustainable solutions, such as a deposit system for takeaway food.

The start-up “La Consigne Greengo” offers a mobile application to borrow a returnable container free of charge from one of the partner retailers, which must be returned to one of the collection points within 30 days. The project not only reduces the production of non-recycled waste, but also raises awareness of environmental issues among shopkeepers and consumers. This practice should quickly spread throughout the capital in order to reduce the mass of single-use plastic waste from fast-food restaurants amounting to 15 tonnes per day.
