Disposable Doner Kebab Packaging
The kebab is an integral part of the German fast food culture. Unlike e.g. a cheeseburger at McDonalds, the kebab is always wrapped in aluminum foil, usually even for immediate consumption in the bistro. The minute duration usage is way out of proportion to the high consumption of resources and energy that is spent on manufacturing aluminum foil.
The idea was to rethink the traditional way of wasteful use of materials. This project deals with the avoidance of aluminum and plastic foil as packaging material for the kebab. It was about to find a material that fulfills the requirements of an ecological, cheap and not harmful to one‘s health packaging.
The DÖ kebab packaging is a disposable packaging for eating Döner kebab. It consists of eco-friendly and recyclable pulp, based on fiber moldings.
