The idea was to save insects by transporting them from inside to outdoors. Often people don‘t want to touch insects, so they kill them by slapping them with a rolled newspaper or a swatter. This is why “save a bug” was developed, a live trap for insects, completely made of 100% recyclable carton and easy to use. Finding a simple way to catch the insects without harming them was not easy. The solution were two folds that can be closed against each other, so there won‘t be any force crushing the bug. The properties of the cartonboard were perfect for this purpose.
“Helping the environment and nature was always very important to me. I hope that my idea might bring something good to the world. With it’s simplicity in production and use, “save a bug” would be able to help many people and save many insects. I hope this Award will promote my design career also internationally. I‘m proud and happy that my design has been appreciated by such an important jury! With the help of Pro Carton I might be able to actually achieve my aims and make “save a bug” a real life, project and product. I want to make people‘s lives easier and save insects at the same time and help the nature and environment.”
