Introduction


As a product designer, reflect on the over-packaging of products, the increasing amount of packaging waste, and the impact of packaging waste on the environment. Consumers have a brief relationship with packaging; their desire is focused on the product in the packaging, and once they receive it, they no longer need it. Usually, packaging waste constitutes an integral part of municipal solid waste (MSW). Most of these materials are not biodegradable, causing more and more environmental problems.

To reduce the environmental impact of product packaging, attention needs to be paid to sustainable packaging practices. These include the use of recycled materials, the reduction of packaging waste, and the development and innovation of environmentally friendly materials.

The project developed a new material that is both reusable and biodegradable.
