Why Packaging Systems and Design?

Packaging design includes many different aspects of the use of sustainable materials and biomaterials in packaging for transportation, storage and delivery of products that must withstand loads, and how all components of the “package” interact. The development of sustainable, “Green” packaging and understanding of cradle to grave issues in the recycling and re-use of packaging materials is critical both to the environment as well as to business economics. Increasingly important in packaging is the development of new materials that can be used with foods and drugs for storage and delivery.  If you are looking for a creative, interesting and always-changing field, where design is the key to making products that are easily recycled and re-used to reduce waste for a greener planet, then you are needed in Packaging Systems and Design.
