Reusable, compostable, recyclable, naked?
Not sure what’s the best and most sustainable packaging for your product? Looking for a solution that preserves your product needs while taking care of the planet?
I can take a holistic view of your process and evaluate all the packaging you consume. Or I can work on an individual product only. Every step counts!
I will carefully elaborate solutions that keep the integrity of your product, meet its transportation needs and communicate your green intentions to your customers. I can conduct a circularity study pointing out strategies to make your process and product more circular.
