About 25 years ago, or probably 30, someone told me they were studying packaging design. Packaging design? I started contemplating that. Over the years, I’ve realized the great importance of this profession ecologically. The joyful potential of it sculpturally and visually.
I’ve not much more to say about it, as I am not a package designer. A thought about yogurt though:
Fruit is about perfectly packaged.
Gifts are sometimes beautifully packaged.
Yogurt containers are like a cross between fruit and a gift, a peal-able and colorful fruit-sized dairy present. How light their ecological footprint is I’m not sure. With a tub of yogurt, less yogurt is in contact with the plastic, if that even matters for the short time the yogurt is in the containers.
