eco-friendly packaging - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
We took our inspiration from mother nature, how she packaged fruit in peel. In time we learned how to literally grow packaging around our products. They smelled great and the peel had so many uses.
Instead of styrofoam we started packaging goods in sustainable partnerships - so that delicate items were shipped with soft fabrics as their buffer. Eventually the home-starter kits for new households were packaged in ways that eliminated the need for anything disposable and everything was useful.
We'd give out food to all the school kids under a marque in case it rained, so we needed eco-friendly packaging. Otherwise we knew what the school grounds would look like after and the local streets. The kids were homeschooling of course, that was during the pandemic, but they needed both some human contact (with their friends and teachers) and good food. So we served samosas, Cornish pasties, and inside-out pizzas. That way we handed them over using tongs and the food was packaged by the pastry or dough. Everything was eaten, no waste. And, if they brought a Tupperware, they could take home dinner too. It was part of the recipe for making life work for our youth in those challenging times. Plus teachers could rib them gently over school work... and kids could rib teachers gently over getting their papers marked... it kept society ticking over.
When quantities of food are shipped to community kitchens rather than the old supermarket system, the packaging becomes far more eco-friendly and sustainable simply because there is no longer a need for either small quantities or bright aesthetically appealing packaging.
