Boulder, CO â€“ tekoÂ®, a performance sock company specializing in environmentally-sustainable materials and manufacturing processes, announces unique new packaging for spring 2008.
tekoÂ® has created bold new packaging that is even better for the planet, and for retailers. Eye-catching colors printed with soy ink make for a friendlier appearance and the ring-shaped design adds visual appeal. The new package material is still 100% recycled (and recycleable) paperboard. The new design requires 45% less material than the old package. tekoÂ® packaging does not use plastic tags or metal clips.
Jim Heiden, Founder and CEO of teko said, â€œThis bright new packaging really conveys the innovative spirit of teko. It’s easier to read and it takes up less space on a rack. This design is consumer-friendly without compromising the look of the teko brand.â€
The front of the ring is color coded; orange for mens/unisex and lavender for women’s styles. The back of the ring has a different environmental â€œteko tipâ€ for each style, encouraging teko fans to extend their eco-friendliness beyond their cozy feet. See the new packaging at the Winter Outdoor Retailer show Jan 22-26th, booth 32260.
