    Seriously, this is some awesome stuff and love seeing smart packaging being created. This is all really awesome. I have a company that is solving the single serve coffee KCup plastic issue. We are using recycled sugar cane and the cups will biodegrade in 90 days in home compost. Nothing like it on the market so far. if interested check it out:http://kck.st/12u2CKS

    Drinking as much tea as I do, and being quite fond of Twinings, I absolutely love their idea to cut out the packaging. I drink TONS of tea and a lot of it is boxed since loose leaf can be so expensive. I love their idea very much and Tweeted the link to Twinings. I hope that they do take it into consideration at least.

    There are some great design concepts here. And I like the fact that they aren't just about slapping the wrist of the producer, but provide a value-add as well (eg. the stories for the tea bags). Really inspiring work!

    Great idea! I've been working to cut out as much packaging (and particularly) plastics from my purchases, as possible. I wrote Trader Joe's to remove some of the unnecessary packaging from their produce.

    I asked JCrew. I have no clue why. But, damn, they sell A LOT of clothes.

    I practice 'reverse marketing ' ! If you recognize the "Brand name " don't buy it !! the companies on adele's list are ALL criminal at least ! TOXIC both personally and environmentally .

      If we don't engage brands to improve, the many ignorant customers will still buy their products and they'll still make big profits. As much as I avoid many brands and try the boycott approach, friendly conversation in large numbers could really make a difference so these companies would work towards more sustainable and ethical solutions.

        That's a great point—I agree. And if we can encourage big brands to make even small changes, their sheer size can have an enormous impact.

      Is there a social app that could be built into GOOD designed for collaborating via social networks for change (like keeping people updated on their progress, etc.) I think a social good power user tool could really streamline the process and make a huge impact on this issue.

      Good point! Glad products for instance, there are so many different plastic bag manufacturers and so much waste involved. The neat thing is many of these concepts can be applied to other brands and packages!
