Ban of disposable food and drink containers at events in Munich

Action leader(s)

Local government of Munich


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.
