From Compostable Pizza Boxes to Biodegradable Drink Vessels

 - Oct 11, 2018
These eco-friendly packaging innovations include compostable pizza boxes and biodegradable drink vessels. When it comes to food packaging and takeaway containers, more and more brands are opting for plant-based materials versus harmful plastics.

Standouts include PizzaRound, a circular pizza container that is completely compostable and made using less material thanks to its streamlined shape. Another notable example is a potato peel takeaway concept by designers Simone Caronni, Pietro Gaeli and Paolo Stefano Gentile. Using discarded potato skins, the designers create an organic and biodegradable alternative to traditional french fry cones.

More eco-friendly packaging innovations that fall outside of the food sphere include Bulldog's 5 liter boxed shower gel which aims to reduce plastic waste, and Designer Brandon Fretwell's unique GoPro camera packaging -- a concept which replaces the device's plastic hardware with durable cardboard elements that can easily be recycled after use. Thrive Market's bio-degradable diapers and DAME's eco-friendly tampon applicators round off this list and speak to consumers' growing desire for sustainable oral care goods.
