If you work for a consumer product company the issue of packaging will soon come your way. If you are a consumer the issue of packaging is an every day occurrence in your recycling bin. So what if companies strove to change their packaging to materials that weren’t just sustainable or compostable, but also positively contributing to the health of nature.

5 sustainable materials designers are using from packaging to fashion

How you may ask? Let me introduce you the concept of BioContributing packaging. A small cosmetics company Haeckles has adopted the first materials in its packaging that improve soil quality. For example the base box is made from a mixture of mycelium that webs into agricultural waste: hemp husks, sawdust and flax. After use it can be composted or planted in your garden. Whereas, the label is made from a seedbomb, a mix of recycled paper pulp and wildflower seeds, you can pot this, water it and wait for it to grow!

Now if a small clean cosmetics company in Margate, UK can do it, why can’t Nestlé and Coca-Cola? The world’s largest polluters sure should have huge R&D budgets? Food for thought.
