Packaging accommodates product through new materials

Implications - Though attention to design and novelty features help make packaging stand out to consumers, turning packaging into a product feature as opposed to an afterthought requires an understanding of product use. Armed with this knowledge, packaging manufacturers have begun creating materials to better accommodate the actual nature and use of the product. This shift speaks to more emphasis on ease of use and product care.
