Usually, electronic companies use thick, corrugated cardboard boxes to protect the product inside. Then, these boxes end up as waste – around 90 billion cardboard boxes are being disposed of after a single use every year in the US alone. Save the environment people!

What you may not have noticed is that each Eco-Packaging box is printed with a dot matrix pattern. However, if the box is opened out flat, these dots can be used as a guide to creating different objects for your home. Additionally, as these boxes are sturdy, it’s good for creating these constructions.

How do you know where to cut and fold? Somewhere on the box should be a QR code. If you scan this, you should be provided with instructions on how to create a masterpiece. In the situation, you mess up on your first TV box, just buy another TV and try again!

If you are considering entering, head to Dezeen’s website in order to get the brief and entry rules. Good luck!
