2016 PAC Student Competition
Just One Package Innovation Challenge

 • This Competition was for an imaginary product. Walmart Canada asked students from 7 Ontario colleges and universities to help them with their plastic bag waste reduction initiative, designed to reduce consumer reliance on single-use bags.
• The goal was to eliminate the need to 'bag' mid to large sized items, and to design a 'carrying' solution into the product's packaging or instore applications for handling and transportation convenience to the home.
• The core design objectives: branding and packaging solution must appeal to consumers ; packaging solution should be environmentally friendly; packaging solution must be convenient to use; develop a flexible system that can extend to multiple product offerings; Cost is an important factor for the brand owner or retailer
