Packaging with a creative impact on the environment.

Welcome to our annual Sustainable Package Design review. In putting together this annual list, our intent is not to point out perfectly sustainable solutions (because there aren’t any) but, rather, to identify packages that are making solid, and creative, steps to lowering their impact on the environment. We looked at the ways material, energy and other resources are used, how the packaging is intended for disposal and how sustainability was considered in the earliest phases of development. This collection of packaging, introduced from March 2009 through April 2010, is simply an indicator of the decisions and choices brands are making at this point in time-a marker on the ever-evolving path toward sustainable package design.
