For durian – by durian

About

New packaging material made from durian to reduce the need for styrofoam

For durian by durian is an ecological packaging for durian made of fiber and starch extracted from the rinds and seeds of the fruit itself. 70% of waste from durian occurs in the form of rinds and seeds and it is often not reused in any way. The project aims to upcycle this waste by turning it into packaging material. Not only the new product can help reducing food waste, but it can be used as a sustainable alternative to styrofoam, thus reducing the levels of other harmful waste in the environment.
