Germany through the introduction of packaging regulations in 1992 and 1993 to prevent 100 million tons of packaging; 1993-1995 through the use of this system is about 13 million tons of packaging waste. Under German law the principle of who produced who recovered. Family reunification of Germany allotted trash, reusable bag small families with kegs, people and more families with vats. Each monthly pay trash. Since 1992, Germany began to implement "green dot" recovery method. They printed on the packaging of goods unified "Green Dot" logo, indicating that this commodity producers have been paid for the recovery of costs of goods. Paid by these manufacturers to build cost recovery, sorting and recycling system, the operation of this system is non-profit nature.

    Residents complete the "Green Dot" logo merchandise to put special yellow plastic bag nonwoven bag, "Green Dot" system has time to hand each household received. "Green Dot" packaging materials including aluminum, iron, tin, plastic and so on. "Green Dot" is not "green products." On the contrary, the German eco-food companies and stores have been no buy "green dot." Because they use the packaging is environmentally friendly.
