Abstract

The paper presents a number of regulations which should be respected when designing a package. Package represents a large percent of the total waste, therefore we should focus on this ‘type’ of product to reduce the resources used and also to reduce the waste through reusing and recycling. Design is strongly involved in this activity analysing the package lifecycle and trying to respect some rules, which represent the fundaments for a design strategy. Regulations regarding materials choosing, materials combinations, choosing the most adequate process are presented. Either the package is reusable or not, it must be recyclable. The possibility of simply dismantle the package for sorting the materials represent another requirement for the design process. Examples of good practice are presented as a case study.
