Malko – Less is future

Malko is an Italian product design brand that was born to inspire an eco-­friendly lifestyle, with “Less  is  future” at the heart of the development.

“Less  is  future”  is  the  slogan  with  which  Malko  talks  to  the  world:  the fight  against  waste is  one  of  the  challenges  of  the  third  millennium.  It  must  be  won  by  changing daily habits. Malko  is an  Italian  product  design  brand  that  was  born  to  inspire  an  eco-­friendly  lifestyle.  Its  mission  is  the  reduction  of  the  disposable  plastic  bottles  use  through  the  new design  of  the  Malko  Bottle. The  bottle is made from stainless  steel, keeping  your  drinks  cold  for  24  hours  and  warm  for  12  hours.  Hygienic,  leak proof,  taste  and  odour  free.

Luis  Benassi,  Malko’s  founder:  “We  understood  the  importance  of  being  part  of  the  solution when  we  realized  the  insane  and  irrational  use  of  plastic  bottles,  with  the  huge  risk  of  ocean’s  pollution.” The Malko Bottle project will be launched the 20th of June 2017 with a Kickstarter campaign.

Davines high end hair and skin care products from Parma, Italy. Through a group of guiding principles they aim to create the most environmentally friendly packaging possible.

Less raw material is possible – so as not to burden on natural resources. For example, by using fewer raw materials, we were able to reduce 33.3% the amount of plastic used for litre size bottles of Davines / Essential Haircare. Another strategy consists in simplifying the packaging system. We did this for our Finest Pigments and Authentic Formulas lines, by applying  multi-page labels directly on the packaging avoiding an additional external box. And is the outer package is really necessary?

It comes from suppliers that are close to the packing site To control the pollution generated from transportation. Among close suppliers we favour those certified for renewable source usage, recovery of water or use, for example, FSC paper.

It can be reused The packaging will last longer if it is created with a reusable purpose.  Our “success story” are Davines/Essential Haircare bottles; they are certified food grade packaging and this means that they can be reused even in the freezer and in the microwave. To all these attentions we add a pinch of ingenuity and small technical tricks such as logistical optimisation; Energy savings within the production chain and the selection of biodegradable materials. For instance, all Naturaltech cases are made of compostable paper. Finally we shall not omit to recall that all Davines products are realised with 100% clean Energy produced by the sun, the wind and the water.”

Relanghe – Torrone

I love the idea of removing material instead of adding. Like Italian Relanghe has made with the text on this package. Especially nice on the yellow package whit dark chocolate facing the front, gives a clear contrast. It’s all made of paper, with a nice, natural textured surface.
