Shoe packaging doubles as carrier and storage display

A packaging concept called RamPack demonstrates how shoe boxes could serve a second life rather than being thrown away after purchase. Created by Ümithan Üçok, an industrial design student at Turkey's Atilim University, RamPack can be transformed from a shoe carrier to a display ramp. The design consists of a box with paper rope handles, plus a green-colored lid. The handles, which are connected to the lid, allow the box to be transported without the need for an additional carrier bag. By tearing away the lid and then tilting the structure on its side, the box can then be used as a display ramp. Thanks to a recess in the paperboard, the shoes can be stacked properly without getting in the way as they’re displayed.

Seed packaging is zero-waste

The Seed Scoop Fertilizer is a packaging offering that has a purpose at every stage without producing any waste. Designed by students from the Royal College of Art, the compostable seed packaging doubles as a soil scoop and is made out of peanut shell material and seeds. After taking off the lidding and removing the seeds, consumers can use the packaging as a scoop for digging out soil and burying the seeds in a flowerpot. Once the spatula is broken into pieces and put into the soil with water, it turns into fertilizer and gives the soil nutrients. The minimal and 100% organic design is a full-circle eco-friendly product and a prime example of sustainable packaging design.

Plastic-free spoon for dairy and convenience products is made of paperboard

The Karlo Spoon by Pennsylvania-based Cardbox Packaging is an eco-friendly alternative to plastic spoons. Made of renewable virgin fibers with a water-based coating, the spoon can be simply disposed of with other paper waste. Because the spoon is easy to fold, it can be attached to the product, or even inserted into the lid. Spoons are delivered to customers folded by machine, and consumers can easily unfold them and start using immediately. Thanks to the Karlo Spoon’s structure, food is well captured at its edges and does not overflow. Karlo Spoon was created in cooperation with Greiner Packaging International.
