Pearl Paper Pod Packaging to Reduce Plastic Waste from Beauty Industry
BillerudKorsnas and Syntegon have collaborated to envision “Pearl”, a paper pod packaging solution to create a sustainable fiber-based alternative with the finest appeal while reducing the plastic pollution from the beauty industry simultaneously.
The beauty industry widely uses portion packaging for sample product packaging. Now, many brands use plastic packaging as it can be easily molded and designed to fit and paper is not that much durable and “pretty” enough.
The award-winning Pearl aspires to change that particular perception. The designers collaborated their work on two earlier projects that also focused on replacing plastic packaging with sustainable substitutes.
According to the design team,
Inspired by life and shapes of the sea, we then conceptualized the project named Pearl. What makes it special are the 3D-properties enabled by the FibreForm paper and manufacturing technology. Resulting in unique tactile experiences and embossed shapes of the paper shell, driving new business opportunities.
The paper pod intends to substitute the plastic used for product samples, inserts, refills, portion packs, and disposable packaging for sustainable brand owners that thrive to level their high business ambitions with high environmental goals.
Pearl natural packaging is a substitute, which fulfills the aesthetics requirements of the beauty industry while also reducing its harmful impact on the environment.
The paper pod could potentially eliminate the requirement for plastic alternatives and could be used in plenty of ways to provide an environmentally-conscious solution.
