But after all, what has changed? Join Etiprint and discover the 3 main new features of the new recycling icons:
1. Packaging component
With a new essential indication, these icons bring information about the different product packaging designations. Some practical examples may be the nomenclature of "bottle" or "package", which allows us to identify the type of packaging we are faced with.
2. Packing material
This information allows us to distinguish between the different materials that are part of the product. From plastic to cardboard, some packages have more than one material in their composition. In addition to improving the understanding of the manufacture of the product, it also facilitates the decision process when recycling each component in the correct ecopoint.
3. Tips and rules
Of great relevance, this element consists of small necessary instructions that we must carry out before placing the packaging in the respective container. Indications such as "separate", "spread" or "empty", encourage good recycling practices and are crucial considering that, according to a survey carried out by Marktest, "9 out of 10 Portuguese people already choose recycling".
