Hello Begoña Picazo Muñoz: The Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE) organization has a tool called Recylass (www.recyclass.eu) that companies can use to assess/evaluate recyclability of their packaging. This evaluation is based on the Design for Recycling guidelines published by PRE. After going through the Recyclass analysis you can apply for recyclability certification with the PRE. Please let me know if you have any questions about this process. Regards.

Dear Wolfgang,

Would companies such as Flexi-Hex or RePack be options (depending on what you want to ship and the protection it requires)?

Best regards,
