Tropical Packing

Tropical Packing proposes alternate forms for conventional packages, using sustainable materials, aiming for plastic reduction. For that matter we propose allying two components: coconut fibers and bioplastic (Ecobras). The coconut fiber promotes resistance, maintaining good conditioning for the product from external factors. Ecobras on the other hand is a biofilm which guarantees protection from physical and biological degradation of the product. After use, the new packing could be fully or partially reused. The use of the packings proposed also promote a new way of practicing environmental education, since they bring to the consumer the possibility of playing an active role in sustainability, thus promoting greater reflection and responsibility on consumption habits.
