KRONBERG, GERMANY – The global online platform for eco-designed product & packaging solutions BEYONDPLASTIC.NET announces the hosting of the BEYOND PLASTIC AWARD 2020. The Award’s motto is: Let us design and create eco- responsible products and packages and transform plastic products into solutions made of environmentally sound materials.
The Award will honour the innovation and creativity in sustainable product & packaging design in three categories: I. Most practical impact to reduce the use of plastics, II. Most innovative approach and III. Most beautiful solution. For each category there will be a Gold, Silver and Bronze Award with trophies and cash prizes of more than 5,000 Euros in total.
Who can participate? The Award is directed towards students, designers, engineers, makers, creators, inventors, artists: Everyone who has an idea, concept, project, prototype or even a solution already in market which supports less plastic packages is welcome to take part. It can either be an entry which replaces an existing environmentally non-responsible product / package or it can be a completely new solution.
The entries will be judged and selected by a jury panel and the winners will be announced and celebrated at the Award Ceremony in May 2020. For details how to participate go to www.beyondplastic.net/award.
