We are now verpackg Compliant!
So this is some big news for our German fans, but a little bit of history.
Back in Jan 2019 Germany introduced new packaging laws which stated that all businesses that sell into the German market, no matter how small, would need to be part of a Duel System. This is a system that ensures your packaging waste is able to be collected and recycled. We have been working on this for a while now and making sure we know and can fulfil our commitments to this law.
Part of this means that GeekyClean has to report the amount of waste we are putting into there German recycling system every year and pay a fee to ensure it is collected and handled properly.
We are proud to say we are now a member of the Green Dot Scheme!
So, what is the Green Dot?
The Green Dot is the financing symbol for the organisation of recovery, sorting and recycling of sales packaging. When you see the Green Dot on packaging it means that for such packaging, a financial contribution has been paid to a qualified national packaging recovery organisation.

This means that we have paid our dues to in order for our waste to be collected and recycled by DSD by placing it in the yellow bins in your household.
This ensures not only our compliance with German law, but also our own values as a business.
We look forward to welcoming our German customers old and new to our website, and sorry its taken so long to get this sorted!
