From the Industrial Revolution to the Inevitable Future: How Packaging Designers Are Challenged to Protect Our World for Future Generations
The excessive production of the industrial revolution ultimately led to mass consumption. This brought the need for differentiation and convenience as the driving force. Disposable packaging became the norm and did not take into account the impact that it would later have on the environment. Rethinking the use of disposable packaging as we evolve from the consequences of the "on-the-go" era to the future benefits of the "save-the-planet" era will lead to a more sustainable solution to packaging alternatives. Convenience was yesterday's short-sighted attitude. Today, as we look to prepare our world for future generations, sensible packaging systems need to be employed to protect our world for future generations.

- Why simplification may be the driving force for package design for 2010
