Green Rice Packaging

Just in time for Chinese New Year, Taiwanese-based company Green In Hand has designed a sustainable, low impact rice packaging for a New Year’s gift, called Together Rice.

Their packaging is made from recycled and recyclable craft paper, paper rattan and tissue paper, in a chemical-free process, using vegetable-based inks and water-based coatings and glue. The rice is from the Guan Shan Fan Taitung family, Yuli, Hualin County, Taiwan, grown under the watchful eye of organic rice farmer Tseng Kuo-chi.

Rice is a worldwide food source and tons of it gets delivered and eaten each day, so a sustainable packaging would be a great idea for larger rice packaging.
