GLRPPR Sector Resource: Thinking Outside the Box on Packaging Design

Title:
Thinking Outside the Box on Packaging Design

Abstract:
Take a look at any consumer product on a store shelf and you'll see why packaging is a growing concern for environmentalists. A simple electric razor, for example, is sold encased in a clear, rigid, molded plastic container (usually unopenable and virtually indestructible!) that houses a variety of separately packaged components: a cardboard box containing the razor blades, a power cord in a shrink-wrapped plastic tube; plastic-wrapped batteries; and another shrink-wrapped packet with various instructions and warranty cards.
