Report: Reuse and Refill Packaging in Retail, Ecommerce, and CPG

Already a member? SIGN IN

With the environmental and health impacts of single-use plastics a growing focus for regulators and consumers, refillable and reusable packaging are emerging as a high-interest alternative to be explored.

In some countries, there are already mandates. For example, in France, retail locations larger than 400 m2 must dedicate 20% of space to bulk and refill stations by 2030.

While a lack of scaled infrastructure and challenges changing consumer behavior have held some refill models back, some categories are beginning to see meaningful traction (especially in refill-at-home models), and an ecosystem of solution providers is emerging to support various categories and contexts.
