GreenerPackage.com’s 2009 Greener Package Awards competition for innovation in sustainable packaging made its debut this year, with 51 companies entering detailed specifications on their new and greener packages for consideration. Judging for the competition—a meticulous and time-consuming process—was done remotely by members of the Greener Package Expert Network, with six individuals forming the executive committee. The judges represented a range of sustainability expertise and included retailers, packaging designers, consumer packaged goods companies, and packaging suppliers.
In this nearly nine-minute podcast, Lisa Baer, president of Baer Design Group and a member of the executive committee for the Greener Package Awards competition, shares some insight on her impressions of this year’s entrants. Baer highlights some of her favorites, including the SunChips bag from Bryce Corp.; Rexam’s oval drug bottle; the Greenbox thermal management system from Entropy Solutions; and the Green Toys, Inc. box from Unisource Worldwide. Baer also provides some tips for next year’s entrants.
Two other podcasts are available, with comments from judge John Delfausse, vice president of packaging development for Estée Lauder, and from Ron Cotterman, executive director of sustainability for Sealed Air.
