The winner of the Better with Less – Design Challenge 2019-2020

Design: Expandable Eco Street Food Ware
Designers: Christine Gamboa and Gaudy Danao III 

The‘Expandable Eco Street Food Ware’ is a highly adaptable plastic-free packaging solution that can provide a simple and trendy alternative to plastic and styrofoam containers which are typically used to serve fast food. The paperboard container is 10 inches in diameter when laid flat and can be folded up to eight different ways ranging from a cone to a plate. The simple design therefore has many applications and can accommodate many types of food.

Besides saving material, the design minimises the space occupied by the container during storage as well as in disposal and recycling.

Second place

Design: Bruk
Designers: Eric Smith and Pushan Panda

'Bruk' is a sustainable beverage carton designed to be recycled. When it’s time to recycle it the consumer simply tears bruk in half releasing the HDPE liner so it can be recycled separately from the paperboard. 'It is also convenient and easy to use.

 

 

Third place

Design: Disposable Razor Packaging – Razor Dispenser
Designers: Magdalena Schmitz, Sarah Redlich, Mikayla Just and Alejandro Don Flores

'Razor’ replaces standard plastic packaging by a minimalist paper box that covers only the razor heads while leaving the handles uncovered. In the store the package hangs horizontally, stacking consecutively on top of each other, requiring little shelf space – still allowing the consumer to view necessary information.

 

 

Student winner

Design: Reload
Designers: Hamzeh Za’balawi, Franziska Prior, Marcel Diederich and Oliver Ricker

‘Reload’ allows the storage and sorting of full and empty batteries in the same package. On the top side of the package, the user can take out the needed amount of batteries and reinsert them on the bottom when they become empty. This eliminates the need for a special box for empty batteries while a red paper strip helps to separate full and empty batteries visually. The concept can be applied to different sizes and types of batteries. The package is made completely of paperboard to avoid plastics and different material combinations which simplifies the separation of waste and the recycling process. 

 

 Honorary Mention

 

Design: Project FF
Designer: Jasper Chou

Project FF is  a sustainable glueless container for ketchup and french fries. Its structure is solid and easy to assemble.
