Nepenthes, the future of schampoo packaging, designed by Marilu Valente. Nepenthes is a manifesto against the plastic packaging overconsumption of today’s society. Marilu highlights that in the cosmetics sector, the plastic packaging is especially problematic; usually their unique function is to attract the consumer’s attention.

“Nepenthes is a revolutionary packaging system which is made entirely out of a single flexible plastic and recyclable material. Nepenthes is a durable packaging which can contain shower gel, shampoo or conditioner. When the content ends, the container can be refilled or if the user wants to throw it away, that is not a problem as long as he throws it in the recycling bin! Nepenthes is fully recyclable.”

“Maria Valente received a BA(Hons) and a Master in Architecture during which her academic interests focused on sustainable architecture and biomimetic design in order to achieve a more intelligent and efficient built environment.”
