Recyclable DBS Discbox Slider
challenge: how can we create more sustainable media packaging?
solution: an environmentally friendly CD and DVD case made entirely from recyclable paperboard.
The hundreds of millions of CD and DVD cases produced every year pose an environmental challenge. The non-renewable plastic used in their manufacture cannot be recycled and generates carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in production.
Our environmentally friendly alternative is a CD and DVD case made entirely from recyclable paperboard, called the DBS Discbox Slider. Our research indicates that the CO2 emissions generated by making this paperboard case are just 10% of those produced by making a standard plastic case.
As well as being fully recyclable and renewable, the DBS Discbox Slider is half the weight of a standard plastic CD case, reducing fossil fuel consumption and emissions in transportation.
Against increasing concern about environmental issues, music companies are fast adopting paperboard disc packaging. Global media giant Sony BMG is one of a number of companies using the DBS Discbox Slider for a growing number of titles.
