California-based industrial designer Chris Whittall created a compostable eco-friendly printer label cartridge for the Leitz Icon label printer. The cartridge housings are made of recycled thermo-formed paper pulp, a robust natural material that serves as both, the cartridge body as well as its own protective shipping box. Hence there is no need for additional plastic packaging. Also, the green “visor” is made of recyclable plastic.
