Fuseproject: Puma Clever Little Bag
"Clever Little Bag" is a long-term project aimed at reducing CO2 emissions, electricity consumption, wastewater and waste volume by 25% at PUMA production plants, warehouses, dealers and offices by 2015 It was born by a project aiming at resource saving of sneaker packaging as a part of environmental efforts. Industrial designer Mr. Yves Béhar and PUMA have passed over 2000 design proposals over two years, more than 40 prototypes, and finally reached this design without "boxes".
"Clever Little Bag" consists of only two parts, a nonwoven bag and a cardboard. The amount of paper is reduced by 65% compared to the previous box, and the amount of ink used is also greatly reduced. Because it is lightweight it also leads to reduction of transportation cost.
As cardboard becomes a partition, thin paper in ordinary sneaker box is unnecessary. The four walls of cardboard are structured to slightly tilt inward so that it is hard to collapse when stacked. It seems that it can be stacked in warehouses and shops as well as shoe boxes so far.
