Cardboard packaging is typically only used to transport an item safely from one place to its final destination before it is broken down and recycled. Samsung is introducing new eco-friendly packaging across its entire TV product portfolio, which means that the corrugated cardboard is not only easier than ever to recycle but it can also be creatively repurposed in the home. Samsung's packaging includes QR codes that link to manuals that help to guide customers through the process of assembling small household items like cat houses, magazine racks or end tables.
To spotlight the new eco-friendly packaging innovation, Samsung is hosting a design competition that challenges people to create inventive home projects for their chance to win up to $10,000 or other prizes.
