Students create new sustainable packaging as part of design competition

What if yogurt cups were widened, so that spoons could rest inside and not topple the container? Or, what if the tops were sturdier, so they couldn’t be punctured or opened when dropped? These and other issues were solved during the 2015 Wegmans Design Challenge, which was part of a fall semester class where students from the packaging science department of Rochester Institute of Technology’s College of Applied Science and Technology the partnered with students from the industrial design and graphic design departments in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences to create a more sustainable, user-friendly packaging concept.
