Packaging: BEST and WORST
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.
