Packaging material, as its name suggests is usually a piece of styrofoam that protects the electronics we bought from being damaged during transport. There isn’t really a secondary use to it, apart from crushing them up to use as fillers for gifts.

Eco TV Furniture

This design by Tom Ballhatchet, turns the ordinary TV packaging into a practical instant furniture piece to set the TV screen on. The packaging is assembled after the TV is removed and the result is a simple piece of furniture that can hold the TV, a couple of players and much more. Perfect if you just moved in and still in the process of deciding the actual furniture piece to get. Or perhaps you may even decide use it permanently.

What could actually come out of this idea is that packaging of all sorts can be assembled into practical items or diy set pieces, therefore reducing the amount of waste generated from packaging material.
