Sand Packaging is Carefully Composed of Abundant Natural Material

This Sand Packaging concept really demonstrates outside of the box thinking. While it has been composed to take a rectangular shape, the item is made from a very unexpected beach-acquired substance.

Alien & Monkey set out to come up with a sustainable solution for product and gift wrapping that deviates from the common paper recycling system. Looking to an abundant source for raw material, the designer collects grains of sand and molds them into cases with caps and thick walls. You can seal the Sand Packaging eco cartons with small blocks of wood; to access what's been placed within them, simply snap the cases in half where guidelines have been incised. The packages will instantly break down into dust.
