Packaging waste equals to approximately one-third of all trash, which costs governments billions of dollars every year in disposal expenses. The images below prove this great contributor to the global waste problem could be lowered significantly.


Packaging solutions usually become the subjects of heated debates.

Or would anyone want casings for coke cans?
