Consider the space-saving packages 04 Flat packing is one of the successful packaging systems that reduce the space required to store or transport the product. Renewable Materials & Durable Sustainable Package Design checklist Energy Recycling Solutions Is the package safe and healthy for consumers? Is the package reusable and beneficial?
