For thirty years, companies have been required to pay a tax on packaging, based on the weight, volume, type of material and its recycling. This tax is used to co-finance waste collection.
Production costs must be compressed and, if possible, using local know-how and materials.
The most eco-conscious companies also try to offset their CO2 emissions by purchasing them from specialized bodies of the portions of forests in some parts of the Earth.
Finally, it is also up to the consumer to assume their responsibilities. Do not throw the item away without recycling its parts, and repair it where possible before replacing it with a new one.
The future of design
More than a trend, eco-design is becoming a necessity . Consumers are interested in a sustainable object, but there are more and more rules that require respect for the environment.
For example, for twenty years companies have been required to pay a tax on packaging, based on weight, volume, type of material and its recycling. This tax is used to co-finance waste collection.
This is how ingenious but useful ideas are born, such as the recovery of gray water from the sink to be used in the toilet.
