35 Environmental Packaging Ideas

From Envelope Shipping Boxes to Canvas Bag Sock Packaging

— February 11, 2016 — Eco
These examples of environmental packaging share several common themes: all of them can be easily returned, recycled or reused.

In the world of fashion, it's become popular for many brands to come up with shirt boxes that can be shipped following an online order that are able to transform into usable hangers. Other examples of transformative packaging solutions include ones that can be turned into handy carrying cases after a purchase has been made in-store.

As a recyclable material, glass is commonly used as a container for food products. In addition to being used to contain goods like yogurt and hummus, this plastic alternative is also being favored for clothing and accessories. For instance, socks from Levi's Basics and premium t-shirts from Vestige Story come in reusable glass bottles.
