30 Collapsible Packaging Innovations

From Accordion Toothpaste Tubes to Origami Snack Containers

— March 5, 2015 — Marketing
These collapsible packaging innovations range from eco accordion containers to origami snack boxes that are inspired by folded paper art works. As consumers grow more concerned for Mother Earth's well-being, sustainable packaging and design practices are becoming a top priority for both independent and established brands.

From food to cosmetic industries, packaging is no longer an after-thought but is instead designed with aesthetics, function and most of all sustainability in mind. Blossoming tea bags and folding beer labels prove that collapsible packaging is not only compact and practical but that it can also be incredibly artistic.

Moreover triangular skincare packaging is adding convenience to on-the-go beauty routines while compressed mattress containers are fitting full-sized bed deliveries into a compact box.
