Case study - Coffee Machine

Finding an alternative solution to problem plastics for a coffee machine

Our research revealed over 40% of customers want their purchases to be packaged in recyclable material. Whist over 30% have stopped buying certain brands because of their continued use of unsustainable packaging. In response to this growing consumer trend, we helped a well-known coffee machine producer, developed a 100% recyclable packaging solution.

 

Solution

The main focus of the project was to replace the foam buffers in the current packaging with cardboard ones. The new solution still ensures the coffee machine is well protected and the packaging passes the drop test with flying colours.

As the new packaging is 100% recyclable, it meets consumer requirements when it comes to sustainability. In addition, it offers an improved opening experience and creates a real ‘wow’ effect.
