Consumers can use the app to scan the barcode (EAN) of a product for which they would like reusable packaging. The association Küste gegen Plastik collects this feedback and sends it in a bundle to the companies. The app also contains positive examples of a wide range of products for which reusable solutions are already available. Consumers can send a message to the retail chains for these products, indicating that they would like to see these products in reusable packaging in the retail chain's range.
