Boxed Reduction

Brands are redesigning essential packaging to cut down on waste

Implications - While protective packaging is an inevitable component of consumption, brands are seeking out inventive designs that reduce waste. This improves brand perception, but also reduces costs and increases the efficiency of the packaging itself. This indicates a slow, but steady shift – from a focus on quick topical fixes where brands and the environment are concerned, to more detail-oriented, long-term thinking.
