A packaging design concept for Starbucks coffee stirrers. This design is meant to repurpose the very cardboard used in shipping other supplies from warehouse to store, encouraging a closed-circuit system approach. One piece of cardboard is partially delaminated, and made into the holder and the sleeve. To reinforce the "green" message, trees are shown as more stirrers are removed from the packaging, illustrating how this packaging saves natural resources. Text on the back of the packaging explains the environmentally-friendly initiative, and the rubber band that keeps things in place during shipping actually holds the packaging together on the store's counter.
