Cardboard Packaging Comes With Instructions For Upcycling Into Useful Stuff

Joolz strollers are not tiny, and come in big cardboard boxes. For most kids, that would be heaven, better than the stroller itself; Joolz has other ideas. Springwise shows how Joolz is making the box into something more than a great fort. The creative director is quoted in Push Chair Trader:

“It’s just really wasteful to throw away all that cardboard”, says creative director Emile Kuenen. “We like to contribute to a sustainable world and my belief is that every step one can take is a meaningful one. For that reason, we set up a special project team and they investigated our packaging thoroughly. They thought about giving the cardboard a second life and designed several products, which can be made out of the existing packing. At first, I saw the cardboard as a necessary evil to protect our products during carriage and storage, but now you can cut out all kinds of products and make them in to beautiful projects. I started to look at cardboard differently.”

My kids would have said that a cardboard box cannot be improved upon; so would my cat. But it is nice to give people options. More at Springwise
