The current disposable Western culture is being reconsidered by many designers, and those behind the creation of Solar Cookies packaging were thinking along these lines. After you've consumed the entire contents of these metal containers, you're more likely to wash them, keep them and reuse them rather than throw them in the trash.
Cruce Design Group's cookie tins are a higher price to produce, but they pay off in serving as perpetual reminders of the brand of baked goods. Consumers may adopt the empty cubic cans as tea tins or places to stash assorted items around the home or office. It's fitting that Solar Cookies packaging should have a vintage visual element to it as well, given that these boxes are likely to survive a very long time from now.
