BEYONDPLASTIC AWARD 2020

The global online platform for eco-designed product & packaging solutions BEYONDPLASTIC.NET announces the hosting of the BEYONDPLASTIC AWARD 2020. The award’s motto is – Let us design and create ecoresponsible products and packages and transform plastic products into solutions made of environmentally sound materials!

The award will honor the innovation and creativity in sustainable product and packaging design in three categories; Most practical impact to reduce the use of plastics, Most innovative approach and Most beautiful solution. For each category there will be a Gold, Silver and Bronze Award with trophies and cash prizes.

The award is directed towards students, designers, engineers, makers, creators, inventors, artists – everyone who has an idea, concept, project, prototype or even a solution already in market which supports less plastic packages is welcome to take part. It can either be an entry which replaces an existing environmentally non-responsible product / package or it can be a completely new solution.

The entries will be judged and selected by a jury panel and the winners will be announced and celebrated at the award ceremony in May 2020.

BEYONDPLASTIC.NET is a global initiative dedicated to reduce the use of single-use plastic products in order to decrease plastic pollution which is littering landmass, entering water streams and presenting an increasing risk to human and environmental health worldwide. It was launched in 2019 as a politically and commercially independent online platform for environmentalists, packaging designers and engineers and companies to present and exchange ideas, concepts and products of eco-responsible solutions replacing plastic packages. It is initiated by Ulrich and Krzyminski – entrepreneur, engineer & inventor – who has an industry insight in the printing packaging industry.

Let us work together for a world with less plastic!

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
