Healthy meals and environmental packaging for catering programs for elementary school. The packaging is made from environmentally friendly and recyclable Cascades cardboard instead of Styrofoam. The cold meal can be eaten with your hands which minimizes the packaging and eliminates plastic utensils. The meal and materials are locally produced thus reducing costs and air emissions due to transportation. The packaging also educates the young students, about endangered animals for example, with included games. It is specifically targeted to elementary school students with its easy and healthy meals as well as the colorful and simple graphical language that encourages learning while also informing them of its content in a positive manner. *Selected to represent the school in the “Ecodesign” category of the 2011 SIDIM with ÉcoTraito *Published in the Arts section of The Gazette, “Imagination Comes Indoors”, June 2011 for ÉcoTraito (Individual project) Read Less

In its closed state, the packaging contains the entire meal in a convenient carrying case. There is a freshness sticker as well as an allergy sticker with a positive and fun twist.
The packaging contains a cold meal, a snack and a milk beverage as well as fun facts and an educational game. It is simple, fun and healthy for the mind and body.
The catered meal opens up easily and reveals a game, fun facts (on the sandwich wrap) and minimizes packaging material to minimize cost, pollution at all stages of production and transportation.
The packaging is simple yet fun opting to maximize visual representation so that children of all ages can enjoy the tasty treats they contain. It continues to retain the same graphical language used throughout
