One of the components of TETRA packaging-materials is the recycled paper.
The basic concept of developing the TETRA carton was to make liquids (such as soft drinks or milk) easily deliverable and storable while keeping them fresh for a long period of time.
Due to the manufacturers’ R&D ( Research and Development ),orisonlinesale.com TETRA products have become one of the most effective packaging materials since the stored liquids take up to 97% while the packaging only 3% of the finished product. The recycling of the waste material, however, requires a special technology since the components, such as paper, plastic and aluminum foil, need to be carefully separated.
Our concept was to create a new article for personal use from the original without the usage of the special recycling technology. Instead, we tried to use the unique design found on each box (for example, on soft drink cartons fruits look very healthy, delicious, and appetizing). The reverse side also has a special metallic surface, which promised to be exciting.
By cutting up the boxes and assembling the different parts together in various combinations, the TETRA-fan was born. Due to the unique design, several variations are possible.
Mainly the world of fruits, the bar codes and the recycling symbols were used in our new design. The thickness of the TETRA carton was also sufficient enough to ensure the rigidity and a long lifetime of the new product.
The product’s package was also inspired by recycling. Simple paper rolls were cut up into the needed sizes then corks were added to both sides. In addition, the fan has a neck cord which gives a fast access to it in hot weather.
