“Eco Seal“ is an innovative and ecological way to keep a bread bag closed and the bread tasty. It holds the bag opening tightly by means of a triangular ridge design which is enclosed by two cartonboard sides. A closing mechanism pushes through a hole in one side, holding “Eco Seal“ together. Consumers buy huge amounts of bread in bags every year and these bags often have a closure made from plastic or metal. The idea of creating a more ecological bread bag seal inspired the creation of “Eco Seal“.
“Eco Seal” is a great example of packaging that tackles and solves a problem. At first the clip looks quite ordinary but on closer inspection you see the benefits that this little clip offers. It is environmentally friendly, natural fibre based, can be easily recycled, is reusable and seals the product in a bag perfectly well! A great idea that is designed to use less of our scarce resources and lower the amount of waste we produce. Jury comment by Philipp Freymüller
