Summary

In Germany, Austria, and Switzerland different regulations have been put into place to ban the use of disposable food and drink containers at large scale events and to establish a framework for the use of reusable crockery. Several German cities took action against disposable food and drink container at events in the early 1990s, and Munich was among these forerunners.
