BIGELOW is family owned company that produces traditional teas. The company was founded in 1945 by Ruth Campbell Bigelow. The company drives itself on always proving the best customer service and taking care of their employees. They are also working towards helping out the community and the environment.
In this time in age there are many products out there that seem to be over-packaged. Over packing our products and making packaging not being reusable or recyclable is causing our natural resources to become limited or worst extinct. As consumers and designers we must be able to help out and reach a more sustainable design for packaging these products.
The solution to the problem is to re-design the packaging of the Oneida corkscrew. The new design must be done to meet sustainability qualities. These include the reduction of materials used, reusable, and be recyclable.
The packaging that the company uses for its can and bottle openers are a cardboard backing piece. Even though this is a recyclable material; the amount of it that is used could be less and still have a good aesthetic look to it.
