Innovative Packaging Could Cut Fast Food Industry Waste By Half
Industrial designer creates a fast-food solution that reduces waste by 50%.
Seulbi Kim is a graduate student at the Rhode Island School Of Design who has come up with a way to combine the separate carrier bags and drinks holders normally used by fast-food chains. The result is a piece of packaging that not only makes life easier, but also reduces waste by 50%.
We’ve seen examples of innovative packaging design before, such as the McDonald’s burger box that has a compartment just for fries, but this packaging makes things a lot more mobile. There are individual sleeves for burgers and fries, which contain internal hooks to keep the contents secure – there’s even a tiny slot for your straw. Handles fold together to firmly lock everything in place, and give you an easy way to carry your meal to the place of eating.
