Before the start of the annual ISM cologne sub-goods fair, environmentalists call for a "system change" in the packaging of sub-goods. "The change must happen now," demands viola wohlgemuth, a packaging expert at greenpeace, in an interview with the deutsche presse-agentur.
There is a conflict of interests, because: "the industry wants packaging. Packaging enables more advertising." In the sub-cellulose sector, a particularly large number of products are wrapped in plastic or packaged individually in stacks.
"We’ve never had safer subgoods than we have today," bastian fassin, chairman of the federal association of the german subgoods industry, countered in poland on tuesday. "Of course, this is also due to the fact that we have packaging."In many cases, it is also difficult to maintain the quality of products without plastic. Sweets stuck together, chocolate ran female – "and instead of chips they only had labber chips". Nevertheless, the company wants to meet this need and is working hard to find other solutions.
