Sustainable Duck Eggs Packaging Makes Resourceful Use of Paper Waste

Many "green" product wrapping initiatives may focus on simply reducing the consumption of material, but this example of sustainable duck eggs packaging goes a step further. Paper that has already served its first function is incorporated into this design, making it a very ecological solution.

Marian Obando proposes the use of a single sheet of discarded newspaper for constructing the basic egg carton. She folds it into a squared basket and tucks a bit of hay into the bottom for protective cushioning. Once the four full shells have been slipped into the sustainable duck eggs packaging, a strip of card is wrapped around the small recycled pannier to keep everything in place. This is printed with basic information about the product, for sale at farmers' markets.
