With the increase of consumers' concern about environment and climate change, plastic in particular has started to be perceived as a problem, one that people feel it's possible to mitigate if not solve. Lots of attention has been focused on the approach to packaging: it must change and it is. Here are some of my reflections on packaging trends.

My blog goes on vacation until September. I hope youโ€™ll miss it! ;) In the meantime, I wish you a marvellous summer and I leave you with a very unexpected tip for your holidays: as I discovered from the Thomas Henryโ€™s advertising campaign, you can use tonic to avoid mosquitos bites.

Appliances and cardboard furniture

Because of the recent recession, the increasing number of single households and the rise of house prices, in Korea more often young people are living in small studios of a maximum of 28 sqm.

Cultivate bags

Recycling is fundamental and everybody is trying to find a solution especially for those occasions in which plastic is still used too much.

FEEDitBaG is an alternative to the thin plastic bag used in that supermarket area.
