I saw this earlier today and was fascinated. Environmentally Conscious Organization (e.c.o) developed a pizza box manufactured from recycled material. I must admit, I don’t recycle much but every time I read about environmental issues I get more motivated to try and be more cautious about recycling and re-use papers and things like that.
Environmentally Conscious Organization (e.c.o.), Inc. is a design and licensing firm, dedicated to improving outmoded, outdated and wasteful food packaging. e.c.o. is marketing its first product, the â€˜Green Boxâ€™ (US Patent 7,051,919), a pizza box manufactured from 100% recycled material. The top of the â€˜Green Boxâ€™ breaks down into convenient serving plates, eliminating the need for disposable plates. The remainder of the box converts easily into a handy storage container, eliminating the need for plastic wrap, tin foil or plastic bags. The perforations and scores that create this functionality allow for easy disposal into a standard-sized recycling bin. Made from a standard pizza blank, the â€˜Green Boxâ€™ requires no additional material or major redesign and can therefore be produced at no additional manufacturing cost. e.c.o. owns the utility patent on the â€˜Green Box.â€™
Simple and clever design. I, for one, usually use plates when I have leftover pizza. But I’m definitely curious to see what’s the outcome of this.
