“Visually appealing, kind to the earth and ocean, reusable packaging designs, reflecting the shades, textures and forms found in nature herself have been a big highlight this year,” says awards founder Fiona Klonarides.

“We’ve loved the strong “relove” ethic, personified by Swedish brand Oquist’s 5-in-1 Balm in terracotta clay tea ceremony-inspired artisan “Cha Dao Bowls” where art meets beauty”.

“ReMI Beauty’s solid luminous moisturiser stones in curved keepsake ceramic “boxes” are unique and so easy on the eye.”

“It’s a joy to see these brands encouraging us to keep and reuse their beautiful artisanal containers as opposed to just throwing packaging away as we so often do – adding to the planet’s already unbearable plastic trash burden.”

“These brands are beacons in a disposable, plastic-wrapped world. It’s important to honour them and give them the exposure they deserve.”
