OUR PACKAGING BOX Hello, welcome to our presentation about packaging on Buzz Lightyear watergun
ALTERNATIVES TO PLASTIC PACKAGING We decided that we wanted to reduce the amount of plastic packaging on toys, so we found a toy with lots of plastic on it and redesigned the packaging. The toy we worked on was a Toy Story toy:
ALTERNATIVES TO PLASTIC PACKAGING First we considered what alternatives we could use: metal – too expensive and heavy glass – too fragile fabric – not sturdy enough cardboard – cheap and recyclable
ALTERNATIVES TO PLASTIC PACKAGING We then made up different boxes to get the right shape and chose this net:

ALTERNATIVES TO PLASTIC PACKAGING This form of packaging is recyclable, easy to stack on the shelf and uses no plastic. If it was used instead of the original packaging it would reduce landfill waste significantly.
ALTERNATIVES TO PLASTIC PACKAGING Some facts about plastic: The UK uses over 5 million tonnes of plastic each year – only 24% is currently recovered or recycled (British Plastics Federation) There are 50 different types of plastic (www.recycling-guide.org.uk)www.recycling-guide.org.uk We now use 20 times more plastic than we did 50 years ago (www.recyclenow.com)www.recyclenow.com
ALTERNATIVES TO PLASTIC PACKAGING We think we need to use less plastic because: It ruins the environment especially for wildlife and sealife It ends up in landfill and it can poison the soil It will help future generations to have a better environment to live in
