WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Solid Waste, in partnership with McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), has launched the Cradle to Cradle Design Challenge for E-Commerce Shipping Packaging and Logistics. The premise of the challenge is to rethink and redesign e-commerce shipping packaging for a cradle-to-cradle life cycle. Designs will consider packaging and its complementary life cycle, including: the systems needed to facilitate cyclical material flows, the ecological and human health characteristics of the materials, and how physical design facilitates reuse and recyclability.
