Eco-Pack / Packaging

Eco-Pack
Eco-Pack

Most packing material consists of plastic and foam products that have low repeated utilization ratio and hard-degradation characteristics. And its overuse would damage the environment in the long-term.
Eco-Pack uses natural materials—plants to make filler materials to be integrated into packaging boxes. After put fragile objects in Eco-Pack, the only thing you need to do is to moisten the package surface. Then, the soybeans between the carton interlayers will germinate and grow fast. The high-density growing sprouts and their intricate roots create a natural shockproof layer along the object's shape to fix the objects firmly.
