Businesses can find out how to tackle the issue of over-packaging and save on costs from an online ‘webinar’ in February 2009, says Envirowise.

Taking place on 25 February, the webinar is aimed at product and packaging designers to help them deal with rising material costs and increasing pressure to improve their environmental credentials, claims the agency.

Envirowise eco-design specialist Jenni Rosser said that some 80 per cent of the cost of a product and its packaging is set at the design stage, so the benefits of thinking about resource efficiency from the outset can be a win-win situation for both the environment and the bottom line.

Webinar participants, according to the agency, can take part in a virtual seminar covering practical elements of eco-design including re-design exercises and comments from key stakeholders in the design industry.
