Student work for body gel and moisturizer created under professor Sylvain Allard at UQAM, who writes:
“The simplistic thinking in eco-packaging would suggest that all it needs is to take recycled Kraft cardboard and the job is done. Unfortunately, it’s much more complicated than that and demonizing plastic over paper is another non-sense. In fact, there are as many solutions as there are different packages and each one should be developed taking into account production methods, materials, transportation and many other factors that ultimately determine the true lifecycle of the product.
However, the reduction approach remains the most easily measurable element of ecodesign. Indeed, by reducing the amount of material, it reduces the weight of the interventions in upstream and downstream production because there will be less material to produce, to collect and to recycle.”

“The hair care products were for anti-aging so the idea of twisting and reversing time or counter clockwise was developed for the bottles and the logo. It would not be obvious to the consumer but having a theory behind the simple design was well received”

The medi flower stands on a desk or table to as a visual reminder to take your medicine. The idea of arranging medicine in a visually interesting format is a good one; the number of petals (pills) on the flower could be designed to indicate the intervals in
a day’s worth of medication for those with a lot of pills to take, or could alternatively symbolize one day per petal. Having seven petals could work well where birth control is concerned.
