SlimBox / food package design


In UK, more than 11.3 billion eggs are consumed per year and more than 9
hundred million egg cartons are used per year. Egg carton made of paper
pulp cannot be reused and recycled, so they are all discarded to the landfill.
Moreover, the empty carton takes space in fridge and rubbish bin. The bin is
faster to be filled so more plastic bags are used and this is not environmentally-friendly and efficient.

SlimBox reuses the throw-away corrugated paper from the store. The flat-pack design is for transporting and throwing away. Moreover, the carton
can be divided into different sizes for storage.The packaging can be recycled afterward.
