The Hardy Boys design agency created this unique packaging to contain edamame snacks, which is made from recycled edamame pods. By using the bean's pods to remake the packaging, it creates an eco-friendly product that reduces waste.

The Fair Food Company aims to create healthy alternatives to junk food, which is exactly why it serves edamame. After steaming the beans and placing them in the edamame pod packaging, the beans are served to consumers during public events in South Africa.

The company decided to seek an alternative packaging idea that would contain the delicious and tasty snacks while contributing little waste to the environment. When consumers dump the boxes of edamame into the trash, the Fair Food Company retrieves them and mills the boxes with the pods to make a sturdy paper-like package.
