Entrepreneurs with a desire to reduce their plastic waste
The team of Rost Dock decided to take part in the prototyping process with a focus on a new initiative in which they take part as one of six founders. "Plastikfreie Stadt" is Germany's first network-based entrepreneurial initiative for voluntary savings of disposable plastic. The initiative was founded in May 2019 by 6 companies from the Hanseatic and university city of Rostock and is currently in the seed phase. At the moment the initiative is organised by a registered association and the start-up phase will be significantly shaped by 3-4 initiators. The concept that is crystallising out has the claim to be transferable throughout Germany to achieve a fast and efficient reduction of the consumption of disposable plastics.
