HUNTER BRAND BOOTS
This packaging project was to design packaging for an environmentally responsible shoe. Ordinarily, to obtain rubber from a rubber tree, the tree must be killed in the process. These Hunter Brand boots are made from dandelion rubber; rubber that can be made without killing the dandelion plant. The shoe box is made from recycled wood and doubles as a planter box. The packing paper was made with seeds, and when it is planted in soil, it composts around the seeds. When the boots are unpacked, the consumer has almost everything to plant a mini garden in their shoebox. This project works toward sustainability from multiple directions; from the way the boots are made, to the way they are packaged.
