Eco-Pack / eco-friendly packaging

Eco-Pack
Eco-Pack

The rapid development of e-commerce has led to a surge in transportation and also caused pollution of package wastes. Most packing material consists of plastic and foam products that have low repeated utilization ratio and hard-degradation characteristics.
Eco-Pack uses natural materials—plants to make filler materials to be integrated into packaging boxes. After put fragile object in Eco-Pack, the only thing you need to do is to moisten the package surface. Then, the high-density growing sprouts and their intricate roots between the carton interlayers will create a natural shockproof layer along the object's shape to fix the objects firmly.
