Explore the world of packaging in our latest edition of y

Our latest issue of y features introspection and other musings on the world of packaging.

From the earliest examples of glass containers and vials through to biopolymers used for bottles, jars and trays, packaging has been the middleman between the product and consumer for thousands of years.

But packaging as a concept goes much further than that – from protection, clothing, branding and more, we discover that packaging can fulfil a number of purposes.

In this issue, we take a look at everyday examples from the natural world, ancient Egypt and the industrial age – uncovering the remarkable provenance and longevity of packaging, and what needs to be tackled for our future’s sake.
