Transitioning to Circular Packaging and Product Reuse in Lebanon


Although a transition towards a circular economy includes many trades and topics, this paper explores possible strategies for Lebanon to adopt a circular approach to waste management and materials revalorisation, with a specific focus on packaging recirculation and product reuse, looking into:

a) Reducing waste coming from disposable one-time-usage packaging through circular packaging solutions, substituting in particular Single Use Plastics (SUPs) and plastic/nylon bags, and;

b) Incentivising the reuse/repair/recirculation of products in Lebanon, lessening the need for imports, increase self-sufficiency, and creating local job opportunities.

The paper provides initial recommendations and an action roadmap founded on the degree of feasibility of each strategy or solution in the country. It is based on research, local expertise, as well as three short consultations 6.
