Tahsin Dag exposes the tricks of the colorful Christmas wrappings
Whether it's stars, ribbons or gold-plated special edition chocolates and the like, they are extravagantly packaged at Christmas time at the expense of consumers and the environment.
In the example shown, special and Christmas packaging for food and confectionery is up to 186% more expensive than conventional packaging (Life – People, Moments, Stories, 2022). RTL reporter Olivia Schulze Wierling wanted to get to the bottom of this price increase and made an appointment with Tahsin Dag - Founder & CEO of PAPACKS.
Packaging expert Tahsin Dag uncovered the tricks used by many brands for Christmas products and referred to the problematic disposal and return of the packaging. Special prints and 3D effects in the design not only make the packaging more expensive for consumers, but also more harmful to the environment. At the same time, the product content is reduced due to the special shape of the packaging.
The result: Higher prices and lower product quantities for consumers and more environmental emissions that pollute our nature.
“Our packaging products are inspired by nature. Accordingly, we only use renewable cellulose raw material and do not dye our products or use other substances that make return, disposal and recycling difficult or impossible.” – Tahsin Dag
