Flex / Packaging


Along with the growth of online shopping and courier industry, millions of packages are produced, used and dumped. This is a huge waste in papers. We notice that package box is always much larger than the content, since the package box is limited in sizes. Flex provides a brand new way for packaging. The tape is made of stiff paper with special curves on it. These curves allow the stiff paper to stretch and bend. It sticks to the object and fit the content perfectly to save materials, but still hold up due to the strength of cardboard and the special structure. Flex is easy to recycle and it maximizes reuse of package materials.
