The packaging industry thrives on innovations, which help companies attract and engage consumers before they purchase the product. Creative, unique and “cool” packaging stand out on the shelves and peaks our interest when we hold the package in the store. In recent years we’ve seen unique packaging ideas, such as squeezable wine, origami labels, game board and puzzle packaging, lunch packages which unfold to a plate and confectionery packaging which turns into a mask.
Plastic water bottles are a known danger to the environment, and probably a health hazard to consumers as well, as the chemicals found in plastic bottles can seep into the contents. The main culprit is Bisphenol A (BPA), an organic synthetic compound widely used in plastics, which may cause diabetes, high blood pressure and even cancer.
Alternative packaging materials are becoming more and more popular over the last few decades. In the packaging industry, we see alternatives such as plant-based plastics (A.K.A. Bioplastics), mushroom root, seaweed water bubbles, palm leaves and wood pulp cellophane.
