Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition’s Eco-Friendly Packaging Design
Inspired by Acer’s commitment to a more sustainable future and the efforts of the National Geographic Society to protect our world, the Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition laptop’s eco-friendly packaging design utilizes 100% recyclable materials. On top of offering a pleasant unboxing experience, the packaging can be reused for multipurpose functions and can also be repurposed into a handy triangular laptop stand or a compact storage container that could fit in any corner of a room or desk. The innovative packaging was thoughtfully designed to use 85% recycled paper, a 100% post-industrial recycled (PIR) plastic laptop sleeve, and an additional 100% PIR plastic sheet to protect the device throughout shipping while also lowering the product’s carbon footprint.
