Trific – the sustainable travel kit

In a circular economy, it is our shared obligation to design out packaging waste, giving consumers more sustainable options to choose from. The Trific project is a perfect example of what can be achieved when partners across the entire packaging value chain are willing to explore and be a part of pioneering new packaging solutions, together. 

Trific is a unique 48-hour travel kit that has been developed as a collaboration between four companies: Holmen Iggesund, Yangi®, Optima Packaging Group and FutureLab & Partners. The project aims to speed up the introduction of new sustainable premium packaging solutions for the health, body and beauty industry. Its approach shows how companies and brands can explore solutions together to quickly deliver alternatives to their existing rigid plastic packaging.

The Trific concept was designed with circularity in mind, where nothing is wasted. The 48-hour travel kit prototype embodies three elements of modern travel packaging: renewable materials, low-energy manufacturing, and, user experience. It represents three modes of travel: by air, water, or land. It contains three dry products that dissolve after use: tooth, hand, and shower tablets. The package itself and the sleeve are made from 100% biodegradable and renewable solutions that fit into existing recyclable systems.

“It all sounds so simple, but providing dry cosmetics in a travel kit made from renewable materials has never been done before,” says Hein van den Reek, Director Future Packaging, Holmen Iggesund. “And it has only been achieved now through collaboration.”
