In our last few posts we talked about recycling trends and eco-friendly packaging used to cut down on our impact on the environment. A lot of times when people think of recyclable they don’t always associate an awesome design with it and that is a total misconception. To debunk that myth we have gathered together our favorite examples of recyclable packages and the way that they are reshaping the package design process.
Mommy Francis Packaging
Not only is the design very unique and colorful, but they also use a biodegradable material that resembles plastic for the lids.
The typography is lovely and fits in nicely with such a clean design. In each package’s lower right-hand corner is also displayed the amount that is recyclable.
The Kingdom Animalia Packaging
The packages themselves are made of recycled cardboard. The actual product is a line of wooden animals that are made of sustainably harvested maple wood.
Lee’s Never Wasted Shopping Bag
Great idea of a shopping bag that can be reused for games, bookmarks, and other functional things. We love that it isn’t just about the materials this bag used but also the process of re-inventing its uses.
Sprint’s eco-friendly phone is made with environmentally responsible components and the packaging is fully recyclable.
Pangea Organics Carton
The design uses every bit of whitespace available so nothing goes wasted. The package itself uses no glue to cut down on another resource used. We mentioned Pangea packaging in a previous post so check it out and see more of their eco-friendly packaging like their use of egg cartons.
