Packaging culture and the circular economy

by

Packaging culture is rapidly turning into a trend. In some places, you can now eat your food along with the package. Designers are finding as many alternatives to plastic as possible: bowls made of mushrooms, bags from cassava starch. But are we ready to accept them?

They’re part of the “circular economy” that eschews linear “take, make, waste” models leading from manufacturing plant to supermarket, consumer to landfill. The circular economy instead promotes reuse, repair and recycle (R3) thinking.

It ultimately creates a path that’ll cut single-use plastics, end mindless consumption and tackle climate change, helping save the planet.
