Food packaging isn't the most exciting part of our lives. It's pretty mundane stuff. It's even associated with the more irritating parts about life - from its nebulous position spread across multiple recycling categories to those packets that just refuse to open.
In a way, that's what puts them in a prime position for some creative reinvention. It's fertile ground to create something new, inventive, and maybe even a little strange. The list below contains a multitude of these clever designs that you'll be dying to own.
1. This waste-free honey package turns into a beeswax candle
2. An "Egg Toaster" saves space with easy access
3. The morning commute
4. Life finds a way
5. A butterfly for your teabag
6. Sustainable egg boxes made of heat-pressed hay
7. These chocolates are made to look like an oil paint set
8. A milk carton that changes colour as it gets closer to expiring
9. This is really sweet
10. From wine box to birdhouse
11. Makes it look even healthier
12. No more over or under-serving
13. How did they come up with this?
14. These flowers open once the tea is brewed
15. Straight out the oven
16. Down to the last drop of wine
17. This one speaks for itself
I know that if I saw any of this list in the store I would drop anything to grab one. Maybe it's a blessing not all packaging is this good, because I would be running out of room in my shopping cart and money in my wallet.
