Discipline: Packaging

After a product is delivered, the packaging material is collected and reused. The packaging consists of four pieces and is in a simple, folding structure, thus ensuring easy assembly, breakup, and collection. Highly-durable EPP material was adapted to create a combined interior and exterior material that functions as a buffer cushion and paper box. This reduces the amount of wood pulp used and reduces deforestation effects (63,000 trees annually). It cuts down carbon emission by 7,000 t and results in a 15% annual reduction in disposable packaging costs, making it an economically and environmentally sustainable approach.
