COOLEST. PIZZA BOX. EVER.
Ben Huttley is a Visual Communication designer based in U.K. He made this beautiful, well designed, recyclable and BIO packaging
Through experimentation and innovation I have developed a form of packaging that is 100 percent biodegradable and recyclable. If the packaging is discarded it will have a positive effect on the environment due to the seed embedded biodegradable paper. The twine used to secure the product and label is natural cotton and 100 percent biodegradable. The labels themselves have been produced using a laser cutting machine. This eliminates the use of harmful printing ink, as well as giving the packaging an esthetically pleasing organic look and feel.
Green Initiative of the Day: It was announced yesterday that PepsiCo will soon begin manufacturing a biodegradable bottle composed entirely of plant material — this despite Coca-Cola Co.’s recent assertion that it would be years before a 100% plant-based bottle could be produced.
Materials used include switch grass, pine bark, and corn husks. PepsiCo plans to eventually begin incorporating organic leftovers from its food business.
According to PepsiCo senior VP of advanced research Rocco Papalia, the way the new PET bottles feel and protect their contents is indistinguishable from their plastic siblings. “We’ve cracked the code,” he is quoted as saying. “It’s a beautiful thing to behold.”

Good Ol Sailor Vodka - This bottle design is tough. Designed by Mattias Brodén,this is Sweden’s first vodka in PET bottle. It’s also one of the first vodka made of organically grown, Swedish barley. The new Swedish eco-vodka is distilled four times and has a clean, fruity nose with some spicy aftertaste and released in a Swedish-made PET packaging for minimal environmental impact.

“These products are mainly purchased by women and on occasion by men for women. The packaging should encourage the buyer to be confident of their purchase and not embarrassed. It should also be environmentally friendly and recyclable.”
The Vapur Anti-Bottle reusable water bottle just launched in Canada. Vapur will hopefully help the growing issue of disposable plastic water bottles by offering a reusable, eco-friendly option. The biggest difference between the Vapur and traditional reusable bottles is that Vapur is flexible, stands upright when full and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty, easily fitting into purses, briefcases and even pockets.
