Starpack Competion Entry for 'Innovative Milk Packaging'
This was my submission for the Innovative milk packaging competition. By taking the handle off a p.e.t. milk container you save on average 25% of material in the manufacturing process. A poly-propylene handle is supplied to customers to be re-used potentially thousands of times. The tips of the two prongs on the injection molded handle are over molded in a thermo-plastic elastomer much like that you would find on the handle of a screw driver, this allows them to grip and hold firmly up to and over the weight of 6 pints of milk.
