Cardboard boxes and packing material create untold tons of waste each year, but there have been recent innovations to help combat this excess waste. For this week’s Tag Mockup: green packaging, we’re combining Life Box seed-sprouting cardboard packaging with Microsoft Tag technology.


Instead of wasting yet more paper talking about their product and explaining how to recycle the packaging by “growing” it, a company could simply place a Tag on the box. Consumers scan the Tag and have all the vital information – instructions, promotions, and product details – available digitally on their smartphones.


Once they’ve captured the information on their phones, users can place the cardboard box in a planter or their garden and the embedded seeds will begin to grow.


What are some other ways you think Tag could help reduce our carbon footprint? Are there other packaging ideas that could help? Let us know in the comments below or on Tag’s Facebook or Twitter pages.
