Re­think Re­us­able Fresh Pro­duce bags took out the Best Pack­ag­ing Award. Chelsea Sugar came in at sec­ond place for best pack­ag­ing with its paper bag, and third place went to Eco­s­tore for its re­cy­clable pack­ag­ing and re­fill sys­tems. Sec­ond place in the Worst Pack­ag­ing Award went to Dell, for the non-re­cy­clable, over-pack­ag­ing of their com­puter mon­i­tor. Third place went to Ne­spresso, for sin­gle-serve cap­sules which can­not be col­lected for kerb­side re­cy­cling.
