Pack­ag­ing: BEST and WORST

Element - - Up Front -

The An­chor light­proof milk bot­tle will be hard to beat for the ti­tle of ‘Worst Pack­ag­ing of 2013’ in the an­nual Un­packit Awards.

Nom­i­na­tions for best and worst pack­ag­ing close on July 5, so if pack­ag­ing on a par­tic­u­lar item is driv­ing you crazy, or a pro­gres­sive com­pany has gone with com­postable pack­ag­ing and you think they de­serve recog­ni­tion, make a nom­i­na­tion. Keep in mind that 70 ki­los of pack­ag­ing per per­son, per year goes into NZ land­fills each year.

Run­ning in tan­dem with the awards is the Cash4Good com­pe­ti­tion, where com­mu­nity groups and schools en­gaged in waste re­duc­tion are in the run­ning for a $5200 prize pool.

Visit un­packit.org to make your nom­i­na­tions and for more in­for­ma­tion.
