At Bumerang, we have a clear mission
Eliminate disposable, single-use containers and opt for reusable ones for food takeaway and delivery orders.
In Europe, takeaway food generates +20,000 tons of waste per year.
Biobased, biodegradable and compostable plastics are emerging in our daily lives as alternatives to conventional plastics but they are just a patch that generates thousands of waste.
On average, each European generates almost 180 kg of packaging waste per year.
Packaging is one of the main users of virgin materials as 40% of plastics and 50% of paper used in the EU is destined for packagingEuropean Green Deal: Putting an end to wasteful packaging, boosting reuse and recycling
Recycling is not the solution.
Although recycling rates have increased in the EU, the amount of waste generated is growing faster than recycling operations: Packaging waste increased by more than 20% over the last 10 years in the EU and is forecast to soar by another 19% until 2030, if no action is taken.
We foster a and promote reuse
That's why Bumerang offers you a circular solution; A system of returnable packaging and protected by the new waste law, unlike single-use compostable packaging.
