New Packaging Design for Mobile Products

All packaging materials used for Personal Computer (PC) products
usually become waste products soon after the products are delivered
to a customer.  Social environmental problems occur by these
increased waste products.  This is the current situation in some
countries.

      This new packaging design, developed for mobile products, has
two major parts considered recycling process; that is, an inner box
(2) which has a plastic handle (4) for carrying the product
comfortably, and an outer box (1), including cushions (3), which is
just used for distribution.

      The inner box (2) with a plastic handle (4) will be used like a
carrying case by the customer who bought the product, and the outer
box (1) may be returned to the manufacturer directly from a
retailer/shop for  reuse/recycling.

      This new packaging design solves or reduces social
environmental problems recently occurring in several countries in the
world.
