The brief

Your task is to create a packaging solution that reduces or removes fossil-based materials in food packaging or other consumer packaging by using our renewable paperboard materials innovatively. Think outside the box! 
Whatever direction you take, your goal is to reduce waste and to increase circularity of packaging. In the first phase you will be presenting your ideas and concepts digitally. However, don’t focus solely on the digital presentation, as your idea also needs to translate into a working packaging solution to be considered for selection. Design circular!
