Green packaging

With product packaging, doing what is best for the Earth also saves money.


Sustainable packaging needs to use recyclable materials drawn from sustainable sources, and needs to be designed intelligently to be efficient in materials and functionality. If it can be re-used as is, like your personal water bottle, all the better.


Improving consumer product sustainability is a lot about the "nuts and bolts" of product design and production, and packaging is one area where we can expect a tremendous amount of innovation in the next 5 years.
