GUM Dental Rinse / Foldable bottle

GUM Dental Rinse

Discipline: Packaging

GUM Dental Rinse

Discipline: Packaging

Specific health provisions prevent this type of product from being reused; once it’s empty, it has to be discarded. As the bottle is rather bulky, however, you may feel guilty about throwing it in the trash. And that’s exactly why we implemented an easy-fold design, lowering the ecological impact by reducing the amount of plastic. The bottle marries design and practicality, while reflecting Sunstar’s philosophy of usability and advanced product assembly. Once folded, the bottle retains that shape and can be discarded. As a result, the company now uses this foldable bottle as standard.
