Our Black Forest roots

Protecting nature was the motivation for people in the southern Black Forest when they presented us with the issue of recycling used packaging in the middle of the 1980`s.  Supported by a great collection-activity of people in this area who were ready and willing to recycle, plus the assistance of youth groups, the eco-NGO “BUND” local retailers and the Breisgaumilch dairy; - we started the recycling of post-consumer packaging already in 1987, which has since become mainstream throughout Europe
