IÖW (2020): Consumer survey on packaging volume

As part of the Innoredux project, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) launched an online survey on packaging waste. The aim was to find out to what extent it is accepted to abstain packaging and what potential unpackaged products have.


IÖW (2020): Verbraucherumfrage zum Verpackungsaufkommen

Im Rahmen des Projekts Innoredux, gefördert vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF), startete das Institut für ökologische Wirtschaftsforschung (IÖW) eine Online-Umfrage zum Thema Verpackungsmüll. Ziel war herauszufinden, inwiefern ein Verzicht auf Verpackungen akzeptiert wird und welches Potenzial unverpackte Produkte haben.

A sustainable alternative could be disposable masks from bacterial production.
