From Waste-Reducing Bottle Caps to Waste-Free Espresso Pods

Waste-reducing product designs communicate to consumers that a brand cares about both the environment and a customer getting a product's full value. In many cases, brands can be observed improving product packaging in order to lessen unnecessary waste, in turn extending the life of a product.

In particular, the design of the "pod" for home brewing systems has recently undergone plenty of redesigning in order to better meet the ethical expectations of consumers. The results are plenty of compostable and recyclable pod designs that lessen one's carbon footprint.

Multi-purpose packaging is also an efficient means of eliminating the waste associated with any given product. From creative alternative uses to food packaging that functions as a serving tool, multi-functional package designs reduce waste and empower consumers to make responsible choices.
