OCTOber 2021
 
Welcome to COMPASS for October!
 
My children’s school collects hard-to-recycle items like crisp packets and toothpaste tubes. Until the scheme started, I am ashamed to admit… these items went into the bin.
 
Now, my children take these items to school - where they are collected and recycled by TerraCycle - and the school earns money for its gardening club!
 
Why am I telling you this? Because initiatives like this didn’t exist when Konny and I went to school in London and Frankfurt, but we are proud to watch the next generation of sorters and recyclers already in action!
 
Our companies around Europe have encouraged sustainable behaviour among young people for many years. This month, we hear how ERP in Denmark and Poland are nurturing young recyclers of e-waste and batteries!
 
But what about us, the adults? What are we doing in environmental and chemical compliance?
 
At Landbell Group, we track changes in the regulations so that we can best support our customers. This month, we have the latest news on the EU battery regulation, the Commission’s guidelines on EPR, and the SCIP database.
 
We don’t just support companies. We’re also proud to announce that we’re helping three Indian states to stop plastic waste: a huge project for a huge country.
 
In “Behind the Scenes”, we talk to Anne Lamp from the successful startup, traceless materials. One of the biggest e-commerce companies is now working with this young, innovative startup.

The next generation is already hot on our heels. They've got big plans for our future!
