Chinese designers develop environmentally-friendly detergent package with useful scoop

Every once in a while, a product innovation comes along that's so clever it makes you wonder why it took so long for someone to come up with it. This week's winner in this department is a Chinese team which has developed a packaging concept for detergent with a tear-off scoop spoon.

The top of each package is perforated to tear into a handle, with one corner of the bag — which you would tear off for pouring anyway — open to form a ladle-like scoop calibrated to be the right size for the detergent you are scooping. It's a simple concept with a lot of advantages.
