 Abstract. The interest in the problems of  environmental protection and, in particular, reverse logistics, results primarily from the  growing awareness for environmental issues in the society as well as applicable and changing legal regulations. The  representatives of various areas of social and economic life understood as  intersector cooperation is becoming more and more desirable also in relation to environmental protection. Reverse logistics begins to be in the centre of  activities carried out by inter-sector partnerships, through such actions as reuse of packages, minimising energy consumption and pollution connected with transport and recycling of package discards, among others. This article aims at showing the  application of reverse logistics  in the activities undertaken within the framework of inter-sector cooperation in Poland, by entities of social economics(social cooperatives).  The case study method is  applied.
