Are you someone who cares about the packaging of the products you buy and use? Biologist Rut Abrain Sánchez does, and on her blog Esturirafi she shows six examples of ecological packaging [1] of some products in Asia, Europe and North America. To understand the scope of this issue, Abrain quotes the definition of ecodesign:

El Ecodiseño, también conocido como Diseño para el Medio Ambiente, es una metodología que considera el medio ambiente como un criterio más a la hora de tomar decisiones en el proceso de diseño de productos industriales, adicionalmente a otros tradicionalmente se han tenido en cuenta (costes, calidad, …).

Ecodesign, also known as Design for Environment, is a method that considers environment as another guideline when making decisions in the process of designing industrial products, besides other traditionally taken into account (cost, quality…).

This means ecodesign considers the reduction of material, using biodegradable material and the reduction of emissions into the atmosphere.
