Cosfibel creates sustainable coffrets for Parley for the Oceans

To reinforce the ethical message, thick, rigid recycled FSC-cardboard was selected and coated with recycled paper

Cosfibel Group has created boxes to showcase the limited-edition, sustainable Artists-designed bags from American non-profit organisation Parley for the Oceans.

In 2012, Cyrill Gutsch created Parley to help protect the environment; one of its first creative projects was the creation of a series of artistic, eco-friendly tote bags for which Cosfibel designed coffrets.

Now, ten artists, including Ed Ruscha, Pipilotti Rist and David LaChapelle, have designed a series of bags for Parley made from recycled plastic waste from the ocean.

To showcase the limited-edition collection, Cosfibel developed sliding boxes featuring the respective visual of the bag inside.

In line with the ethical message, thick, rigid recycled FSC-cardboard was selected and coated with recycled paper.

According to Cosfibel, the use of recycled paper meant extra care had to be taken when printing the images on the top of each box to render the colours correctly.

An aqueous ink was chosen for the job.

The 100% recyclable boxes come in two formats, to house one or two bags, with a total of 15 references.
