Previously, beauty brands used crystal-like double-wall design to represent luxury. In fact, this structure does not have functional purpose, only to achieve a good-looking appearance.
What’s more, the outer shells are made of SAN or PMMA material, and the recycling symbol is 7, which means they are very difficult to recycle, and even impossible to recycle in some areas without advanced recycling system and facility. Apparently, these packaging are destined to landfill. Also, some brands consider to use plastic component with glued aluminum which is not recyclable either. We called them “unsustainable luxury”.
Ultra sustainability but too old school
In order to address the issue of plastic waste, certain brands are exploring the use of plain aluminum packaging as an alternative. While these packaging solutions are indeed environmentally sustainable, they come with a few drawbacks, including:
Very limited possibilities of custom design
Functionless use experience
Have to compromise sustainability aesthetics
