Today we’re thrilled to announce a brand new editorial series on Inhabitat that explores the past, present, and future of packaging design, hosted by Eco Chick [2] founder and green journalist Starre Vartan! Each year households in the U.S. send over 270 million tons of trash [3] to the landfill, and much of this waste consists of materials used to wrap, ship, and package products. Fortunately, there’s a plethora of ways to make packaging more environmentally sustainable — stay tuned as our Packaging the Future series explores natural solutions to the packaging problem, innovative new approaches to creating eco-efficient packaging, and the future of sustainable packaging design.

[4]Starre Vartan is founder and editor-in-chief of Eco-Chick [2]and author of The Eco-Chick Guide to Life [5] (St. Martin’s Press). A green living expert, she is managing editor of Greenopia [6] and a contributor to The Huffington Post [7].
