Small format plastics like bottle caps, wrappers, sachets etc are designed for a short lifetime, for convenience, portability and almost to ignore them. When the root itself is unsustainable, we cannot expect users ( consumers ) to take an extra step to discard responsibly. Hence, it is taking a toll on the ecology.
We need to take Stop it or Mop it approach. Either we need to eliminate the small plastics or make way to find an extended creative use for them. Here I'm dealing with the latter approach.
To find a way to let the consumers discover step by step instructions to creatively reuse the packaging. As manufacturers, of course, they need to invest a little bit more resources in going an extra mile to increase the longevity of the product. However, the more creative they get, greater the brand loyalty from the consumers. Parents can inculcate creative endeavor in their children to explore these packages and take up as assignments.
