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.
