What is the ECOBOX?
In many restaurants, hotels, and canteens, customers can take away their meals or leftovers to enjoy later. As a result, a large quantity of single use packages end up in the bin within a short time.
We have an ecological and sustainable solution for you: the ECOBOX!
The ECOBOX is a deposit-return scheme for multiple purposes developed in Luxembourg for transporting meals. Whether it’s at a restaurant, canteen, or for takeaway food, the ECOBOX can be used almost anywhere.
ECOBOX’s multiple use will eliminate many single use packages. This initiative allows for the reduction of volume of waste, because it reduces not only the number of packages but also the quantity of food waste.
This system is very ecological and sustainable, because defective ECOBOXes that are unusable are sent back to the manufacturer and can be reused as raw material for new products.
The ECOBOX is available in two sizes. (500ml and 1000ml)

The ECOBOX should be washed after use.
