In the case of a sachet containing the surprise of an Easter egg, is environmental labeling required?

Yes, boxes for chocolate eggs and other containers with the same function are considered packaging.

Therefore, pursuant to art. 219 paragraph 5, such packaging intended for B2C must have:

  1. The packaging material’s identification code under Decision 129/97/EC
  2. Collection guidelines. We suggest using the wording “(Material family) collection” and inviting the consumer to check their local municipal guidelines.

All other additional information is voluntarily applicable.
