  Modular Design

How your product and its packaging is designed greatly influences how it will be used, reused and recycled.

By looking beyond the initial consumer and thinking right across the value chain, designers can make sure that the products they create are durable, easily maintained and upgraded, and can be reused or discarded in an environmentally and socially responsible way.

For example, Toyota has put in place systems to make their cars easier to disassemble or recycle, and ecostore have gone so far as researching and creating entirely new materials for their packaging.
