Spiritual Supplies / Product Design - Eco Solutions

Spiritual Supplies

There are thousands of homeless people suffering and having no where to go due to earthquake, typhoon and tsunami every year. Kids in those disaster, in particular, can be wounded so badly in mind during their growth. We turn bottle caps into Chinese chess pieces and print a chessboard inside the packaging box. After the water is drunk up, abandoned caps and chessboard inside box can be severed conveniently as an entertainment equipment in disaster area where all supplies are in shortage. Kids will forget the trauma of the disaster in playing games. This design saves resources, what’s more, it gives concerns to kids in disasters.
