The Box: The first packaging solution without packaging material
LivingPackets, a next-generation packaging solutions start-up, is launching "LivingPackets THE BOX, " a revolutionary, sustainable and trackable shipping box which generates almost zero packaging waste.
Reusable up to 1,000 times, the smart box holds contents up to 5kg. It features real-time environmental monitoring (location, temperature, humidity, shocks, opening), as well as an integrated camera for remote viewing of the contents. An automatic holding system eliminates filling materials such as bubble-wrap which requires hundred of years to decompose in landfills. The box also integrates an electronic address display, making all packaging stickers obsolete while simplifying forward and reverse logistics. All these features are protected by global patents.
"In addition to a massive reduction in cardboard and plastic waste, THE BOX can save merchants and logistics companies significant costs - up to 10 times less as compared with one-way packaging which uses a myriad of environmentally unfriendly materials," says Alex Cotte, CEO of LivingPackets Group.
