HEDEGAARD foods developed a recycling concept: not only do the egg boxes fold together to save space but they can also be reused in three different ways:
1. Recycle at home:
The egg boxes go in the dishwasher.When washed, eggyplay® can be used as a toy to build towers, castles, houses etc. eggyplay® is child-friendly and has received the CE approval as a toy. Furthermore, the boxes can be reused as an alternative and fun storage solution.
2. Recycle at the recycling center:
eggyplay® is made out of polypropylene (PP) which is recyclable.
3. Recycle at HEDEGAARD foods:
Alongside the development of the eggyplay® boxes, HEDEGAARD foods created a concept for a potential return system. The idea is that customers return the empty eggyplay® boxes to the store, like PET bottles, and the stores then return them to HEDEGAARD foods to be reused. In order to implement this, a suitable workflow has to be developed in cooperation with the stores.
