Environmentally conscious product development in the area of packaging: The Air-Pack

 

 

 

Belonging to an environmentally conscious product development is the reduction of energy and raw materials consumption as well as the use of toxic substances. The prevention of product expense stands in the foreground of environmentally conscious product planning (LINDER 1993).
To deal with the danger of an alibi mentality, one should first look if the product itself makes sense. If the product as such is seen as avoidable, the problem of product construction is superfluous. If it is in fact considered necessary, useful or at least justifiable, then the search for a product with maximum longevity and a production process causing minimal environmental burden begins.
 In this chapter I introduce a patented alternative in packaging which I invented and which meets the criteria of an environmentally conscious product construction.
