No waste packaging

Posted on 24 Jul 2008 by The Manufacturer

Rob Thompson finds a novel new idea from Japan to cut down on packaging...

“Tofu packed into balloons, by Kamakura-komachi?! Surprisingly a great example for reduced packaging: Its elastic material is extensively stretched, and when pierced with a toothpick, the balloon bursts and only a tiny bit remains. How amazing! REDUCE with more flexibility! The same packaging concept is also applied to a pudding.”
