South Africa Plastics Pact Reuse Innovation Challenge: (Deadline 1 February 2021)
The South African Plastics Pact is working towards a circular economy for plastics, a South Africa where plastics are valued and do not pollute the environment. Part of the solution is to increase the number of reusable packaging items used in place of single-use packaging. The SA Plastics Pacts invites packaging designers, product developers, innovators, and inventors (independent or affiliated) to enter the SA Plastics Pact | Reuse Innovation Challenge 2021.
The South African Plastics Pact is looking for reusable packaging solutions that can be viably implemented by brand owners and retailers in South Africa. This solution should be geared towards reducing the amount of plastic waste in South Africa, ideally addressing currently non-recyclable plastics or those that are often littered.
Who can enter?
The competition is open to all packaging or product development designers and innovators, industrial designers, brand owners, retailers, entrepreneurs and anyone who has an innovative idea or pilot project with regards to reuse delivery models.
How to enter?
- Choose an item on the South African market which currently is packaged in plastic packaging that is not designed to be reused
- Develop reusable packaging solutions to replace it. This should include every aspect of the reuse cycle of that product (from fill to refill)
