“It seems strange that conscientious dog owners pick up their dog’s poo (which is 100% biodegradable)…only to pop it into a plastic bag that will be with us for 100’s of years.
US dogs produce enough waste to fill an 800-foot-tall football field every year and plastic bags can take over 100 years to decompose. Scooping all that poop into petroleum-based plastic bags leaches toxic chemicals as they slooowly break down over thousands of years in landfills. Alternatively, leaving scat on the ground isn’t an eco-friendly (nor neighbor-friendly) option either, as 20-30% of all pollutants in waterways can be attributed to canine waste.

“It didn’t have to stand out on a supermarket shelf, because it would never be on one. We didn’t want it to stand out on a restaurant table either – even though it would most certainly be on one. We wanted it to compliment a table setting rather than dominate it. We believe the heroes of the table should be the wine and food, not the water bottle. So we kept the bottle short and fat and we kept it clean and simple. We wanted it to look as pure on the outside as it in fact was on the inside.”

Beautiful astrologically inspired designs from for Meteor Wines. The rich color of the wines acts as a nice backdrop for the packaging.

Nice clean work from Mouse Graphics for Uncle Statis Frozen Herbs. The pairing of product photography, a simple infographic styled icon and foil pouch, is a great way to visually illustrate exactly what’s inside.

“The challenge behind Beautea was to develop a line that reflected the earthy naturalness of an Organic Bath & Body line and feminity of the packaging since women were the prime consumers of this type of product. Also, since it is a bodycare line infused with Tea it was very important that the packaging reflect this and not mistaken for “drinking tea”. Inner packaging was sourced throughout the world and reflects the “cleanness” of a natural, organic line. Natural Fragrances developed by our Perfumeur in Grasse, France. All organic ingredients were sourced from Organic certified farms mostly in California. All organic tea extracts were sourced in Arizona through a specialized Tea importer. It was essential that the logo with the tea pot be sticking and reflected the ingredients inside the product… tea.”

Masha sent us this great project that she produced while studying at British Higher School of Arts and Design in Moscow.
“Artea consists of a basis – black or green teas – and additional natural ingredients. The consumer has the choice to make the tea they want which coincides with their mood and situation. They can experiment, control and change the tea to their taste.

Many thanks to Big Fish Design for sending in this beautiful packaging for Belvoir Fruit Farms.
