Rules for Stewards
Two categories of packaging are addressed by the MMSM program:
- “Pre-packaged goods.” This includes all packaging supplied with the product.
- “Service packaging.” This is packaging provided at the point of sale by a retail seller or food service industry to facilitate the delivery of goods to the consumer. This includes single-use plastic bags.
Printed Paper is defined as “paper that is not packaging, but is printed with text or graphics as a medium for communicating information.” It includes telephone directories, catalogues, newspapers and flyers, warranty cards, promotional materials and magazines, but does not include books.
