With sustainable shopping as a high priority for consumers, many brands have already started making changes in their business model, paying more attention to the recycling options for their products and packaging, as sustainability is taking a central role.
Aligned with the general EU Green Deal initiative, both France and Italy want to make sure that brands are more transparent and tell consumers how to recycle the packaging of the garments they purchase. Thus, the two countries have adopted a set of rules that need to be applied by January 2022 and concern all brands shipping products there.
The two initiatives mark a joint act of responsibility that interests every actor in the supply chain. The “Triman” sorting logo is part of the “Sorting signage for household packaging” regulations in France and is called “Signalétique de tri des emballages ménagers”, in French. The “Italian environmental labelling for packaging” regulation is thus called “Etichettatura ambientale obbligatoria degli imballaggi” originally. And both can be hard to implement, without access to trusted sources of information and direction for application.
The two regulations’ implementation date is January 1st, 2022, with a grace period after which brands shipping to France or Italy will need to comply.
Thanks to our in-house team of experts, and with the original source of regulations on hand, Trimco Group can help and guide you through HOW and WHEN to apply the waste collection marking correctly, for both the French Triman signage and Italian regulations.
