Reusable Packaging is typically used at the business end of the supply chain.
The packaging is made of long-lasting materials designed to used multiple times without impairing its function. Some items will be used in transport like wooden pallets and plastic crates, some will be used for storage like steel drums and gas cylinders.
At the consumer level,
reusable packaging refers to closed-loop recycling schemes, which involves returning glass bottles from milk, soda and beer to be sanitised and reused.
