Design + sustainability excellence: Trivium wins three iF Design Awards in packaging design

By Pace Public Relations   


The 2021 iF Design Awards have just been announced, and for this year’s winners in Packaging Design, the focus is not only on outstanding design but those that fully embraced sustainability methods, recyclable materials and reusability.

Trivium Packaging, the $2.7B global metal packaging leader, is honored to share that it has been awarded three iF Design Awards in Packaging Design for its design of infinitely recyclable and reusable aluminum bottle packaging for Petal, Rainforest Artesian Water and Bubble Tree products.

“Trivium continues to push the envelope by designing premium metal packaging that grabs the attention of consumers while meeting the highest standards in design and sustainability,” said John Blum, VP Quality & R&D, Americas for Trivium Packaging.  “As new, emerging companies as well as large organizations increasingly look to eco-friendly packaging, we’re proud that our infinitely recyclable solutions standout as an appealing, popular choice.”

Trivium Packaging’s three iF Design Awards in Packaging Design were awarded for:


●      Rainforest Artesian Water bottle was designed to help eliminate single-use plastics that dominate the bottled water market. The bottle uses 25% recycled aluminum and can be re-closed, refilled and 100% recycled with no plastic components. Its intricate and eye-catching labeling pays homage to the source of the bottled water, namely the rainforest. The bottle’s lightweight, re-closable and unbreakable elements appeal to the on-the-go, eco-conscience consumer who wants convenience and sustainability.

“This recognition fills us with excitement and gives us a boost to continue our fight against single-use plastic bottles,” said Facundo Fischer, Chief Brand Officer of Rainforest Artesian Water. “Trivium’s trajectory as aluminum packaging manufacturers and our expertise in beautiful design has merged to create the most beautiful and most sustainable aluminum bottle ever created.” Sourced from artesian springs, the water is gravity fed to the bottling plant without the use of energy. A portion of every sale goes towards reforestation.

●      Petal’s Foaming Hand Soap is a zero-waste hand soap system. Refillable pods are shipped directly to customers, which are mixed with water and dispensed in a stylish, reusable aluminum bottle. Available in three sleek designs, the reusable bottles are made from 100% recyclable, lightweight aluminum. The foaming pump is made from post-consumer recycled plastics. Each bottle holds 8.5 ounces of soap made of natural ingredients.

“Although Petal is a sustainability-first, mission-driven company, our focus on design and aesthetic is a close second. It means the world to us to be recognized for this iF Design Award. We are very fortunate to have such a great partner in Trivium who worked tirelessly to turn our vision into reality!” said Jason Domangue, CEO of Petal. The Petal system decreases dependency on single-use plastics. The concentrated hand soap with less water allows it to be shipped more effectively, reducing its carbon footprint. Petal is also convenient because the pods are small and easy to store.

●      Bubble Tree Refillable Bubble Solution is an eco-friendly and sustainable bubble solution that uses aluminum bottles that can be repeatedly refilled over time. In a category that has seen little innovation in generations, the Bubble Tree system is the first to be manufactured and sold in the USA. The kit includes a durable 100% recyclable bottle with an ergonomic grip and cap with an attached bubble wand to keep hands clean. The easy-to-use refill system allows children to fill their bottles on their own and write their names on them. The bubble formula doesn’t include any harmful chemicals such as parabens, phthalate, sulfates, diethanolamine, or formaldehyde.

Amongst nearly 10,000 entries from 52 countries, Rainforest Water, Petal and Bubble Tree’s packaging won over the 98-member jury, made of independent experts from all over the world.
