Innovative Food Wrappers That Help Reduce Package Waste

Food wrappers amount to millions of tons of additional garbage ending up in landfills each year, but the fact that they make food products far more portable and help keep them fresh means they’re not going away anytime soon.

So how do we reduce wrapper waste yet retain their usefulness? Swedish design duo Tomorrow Machine have offered a solution in the form of compostable and reusable packaging.

Tomorrow Machine's package designs come in two package waste reducing forms- a compostable container that dissolves in water and the Sustainable Expanding Bowl:

A biodegradable, cellulose wrapper fits snugly around freeze-dried food. Pour hot water into a spout, and not only will the food insta-cook, the wrapper will blossom open and morph into a bowl.
