German Packaging Act and LUCID ID

The main objective of the German Packaging Act (VerpackG) is to prevent or reduce the impact of packaging waste on the environment.

Gelato is compliant with the Packaging Act in Germany. To ensure that our customers' packaging for the German market is responsibly recycled, Gelato reports annually to the Verpackungsregister LUCID and we pay an annual packaging fee to the Der Grüne Punkt which covers all orders placed through us.

LUCID ID for Etsy users

Etsy have recently started to ask users to provide a LUCID ID when selling to Germany.

Amendments to the German Packaging Act (VerpackG) will take effect on July 1, 2022. Due to the new regulations, the online trade in Germany will be affected, and online marketplaces such as Etsy or Amazon will be required to verify that their retailers comply with the German Packaging Act. 

  • If you have goods produced, packaged and shipped through Gelato via a marketplace, you will have to prove to the electronic marketplace that Gelato, as your dropshipper, complies with the obligations under the German Packaging Act. For this purpose, you can manually submit Gelato’s LUCID number, which is DE2478308883224, on the marketplace as required.
  • If – in addition to Gelato - you also work with other dropshipping / print-on-demand / fulfillment partners or if you package and ship the goods by yourself, you should further check your compliance with the German Packaging Act. Among others, you may be required to register directly with the German Central Packaging Registry, take part in a “system” within the meaning of the German Packaging Act and pay the associated fees. For these products, you may not use Gelato’s LUCID number.
