DailyDirt: Saving The Planet By Using Better Packaging

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Petroleum-based plastics have been getting a bit of bad publicity recently, as “greener” plastics made from renewable plant materials are becoming more cost effective. It also doesn’t hurt that these new plant-plastics can perform about as well as traditional plastics in a variety of consumer packaging. Here are a few examples of some environmentally-friendly containers.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

I stopped buying Sunchips when they went to the new, crappy packaging. I’m glad to see that experiment failed.

I don’t mind recycled packaging, decomposable packaging, or green packaging, although I grow a bit weary of the dotwhacks on the packaging extolling how virtuous the company is.

I do mind being forced to use an inferior product. Consumers are weary of ‘guilt marketing’… a company can’t say ‘suffer through our product, it’s the responsible thing to do.’ Their green product has to be equal or better to the alternative, or it won’t sell.
