Composition of relic
Mixed material, one time use packaging made of plastics, toxic synthetics, and valuable natural resources.
Factors that led us to abandon this object:
More items are available in retail bulk, and consumers are creative in their use of reusable packaging for all sorts of products. Zero-waste policies were implemented.
Obstacles in the way of this relic being abandoned:
The plastic and chemical industries, a blind attachment to 'convenience.'
Strategies we used to overcome those obstacles:
We emphasized purchasing from local sources where packaging is unnecessary, began to prioritize longevity over convenience, and implemented Extended Producer Responsibility in packaging for all products.
