This concept for a cosmetic packaging design line by Elena Antoniou imagines an eco-friendly way to beautify people and the planet. The packaging includes containers for shampoo, conditioner, foam, hair spray and a hair oil that are contained in boxes with a tapered shape. These unique shapes are punctuated by caps on the sides, from which the products can be poured or dispensed. As a result, these boxes make sure that the containers could easily be reused as needed when a product runs out.

Following sustainable design principles such as a mindfulness towards minimal material use, material choices (it's proposed that these boxes could be made from a PLA-blend bio-flex recycled plastic and printed with low-VOC inks) and simple shapes for transporting in groups, which results in a design that is energy efficient in all things.
