The Green Dot was first started to be used in Germany between the years 1990 - 1991 for identifying packagings within a special collection system called the Green Dot System. The Green Dot sign started to be used in Germany was furthermore started to be used in France, Austria and Belgium in the forthcoming years. Upon the Green Dot sign becoming widespread in EU member countries, the "Packaging Recovery Organization Europe - PRO Europe" was established in 1995 and the Green Dot became the official sign of the organization. The Green Dot has become an internationally reputable model contributing to the performance of industrial liability of the companies included in the system adopting the "polluter pays" principle. When you see a "Green Dot" sign on a package, this means that a financial contribution has been made for that packaging to the packaging recovery Corporation established in accordance with the principles defined with the EU Regulation numbered 94/62 with regard to packaging and packaging waste. http://www.pro-e.org
