Over a year ago, we began designing sustainable design concepts for secondlife packaging solutions for both Nestlé Smarties and Milkybar. From a number of sustainable concepts, Nestlé chose our secondlife puppet show innovations, for the launch of their new Smarties and Milkbar 2017 Easter Confectionary Range.

The New Easter packaging has been designed to enhance consumer interaction and opportunities for Reuse. The final design uses secondlife packaging strategies to enable each of the packs to be transformed into an interactive children's puppet show after use. The outer packaging (box) becomes the 'Stage' and the inner packaging fitments include character puppets and other props, such as a stage backdrop, which can be cut out and decorated using the easter egg foils.

Working with packaging is not at all new for us. We established Co-oproduct.org (the award-winning longerlife, Reuse & Repair portal) over six years ago and have been working tirelessly in both public and commercial sectors, to demonstrate that design-led, sustainable product and packaging innovation is possible and doesn't have to cost the earth.

Today, we are very proud to be able to realise part of that mission. Smarties Hen House and Milkybar Milkybarn are perfect examples of products with packaging designed to live beyond their traditional purpose. They have been meticulously designed to be reused, are economically viable for the business and great fun for both kids and their parents!
