Re-use of products and materials based on a deposit system.
Re-use can minimise use of resources as they will be used again instead of becoming waste. Re-use can also prolong a product lifespan.
- It requires systems that are easy to engage with for users in everyday life.
Re-use of a product in its original form, similar to the Danish bottle deposit system, Dansk Retursystem (www.dansk-retursystem.dk).
Re-use of a product material, similar to H&M in collaboration with I:CO-Systems; bring a bag of clothes to the store and get money off (http://about.hm.com/en/About/sustainability/commitments/reduce-waste/garment-collecting.html and http://www.ico-spirit.com)
