Life Ring / Package Design

Life Ring
Life Ring

Life Ring provides a label for reminding people to finish their bottled water as soon as possible after opening. Bottled water brings convenience to our life, however, biological
experts advise us to drink fresh since bacteria immediately multiply the amount even though it looks clean. The ring containing ferric substance can process rusting reaction with oxygen and water when the cap and the ring was separated, and the color is getting darker day by day. The reaction lasts one week which is equivalent to the drinkable period and finally becomes deep brown. It symbolizes the water from fresh to rusted just like the iron rusting in the air.
