Growing Packaging

It's hard to develop packaging these days and not consider making it a little more green. Whether going green means limiting the packaging used, the chemicals and ingredients that make up the packaging, and whether it can be easily recycled by customers. Something that could fit within all these categories is bio-polymers. They are degradable, durable, able to be safely used with food packaging, and some are even compost-able.

As designers we not only need to be concerned of how our product looks, but its function and its longevity on this planet. In order to provide a better future we have to be designing our products now for future.
