Green Dot

The Green Dot is a widely recognised symbol in many European Countries.  It signifies that for each piece of packaging, a financial contribution has been paid to a national packaging recovery organisation.  The Green Dot is a mandatory trade mark in some countries, which means that the first person to place packaging onto the market must pay a licence fee to use the Green Dot in that country and ensure that the Green Dot is printed on their packaging.

The Green Dot is a registered and protected trademark in the UK, but has no other specific meaning for UK consumers.
