Sustainable Packaging Design

First Moment of Truth

Most are familiar with the role that packaging plays at the First Moment of Truth (FMOT) — at the point of sale (retail, online) — and the Second Moment of Truth (SMOT), when a consumer purchases and begins to actually use the product. However, as e-commerce continues to grow, secondary packaging is evolving to support the Zero Moment of Truth (ZMOT), when a consumer researches, or is made aware of a product, prior to purchase (Internet, TV, print ads).

A well-designed package that surprises or delights consumers can add distinction, reinforce the positioning of an upscale or luxury brand, and build awareness of the company’s sustainability efforts.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna folding cartons feature a unique structural design plus cold foil and embossing.

Gable-Top Folding Carton


The iconic gable top design immediately catches the eye and invites closer inspection, while being functional, durable, and sustainable.

This Ole Henriksen Pre-Party Juice Makeup carton stands out on the shelf thanks to its structural design, UV gloss spot coating, gold foil accents, embossing, intricate banana-shaped die cutting, and windowing that proudly displays the products inside.

Sustainable by Design


Diamond's award-winning design engineers create folding cartons that are both innovative and sustainable, while considering factors such as product protection, usability, billboard space, sustainability, and of course, first moment of truth (FMOT).

Our designers incorporate several methods to design more sustainable packaging, including:

Weight reduction
Reducing packaging weight offers the most significant opportunity to conserve raw materials and energy, reduce greenhouse gases, and minimize discards. The weight reduction benefits of lightweight materials more than offsets the far higher recycling rates of heavier packaging materials.
Material reduction
Reducing board usage, or right sizing, contributes to reduced packaging weight and may result in lower overall packaging cost. Designing a more efficient layout reduces waste and energy usage during production and waste recycling.
Elimination or replacement of components
Eliminating components contributes to reduced packaging weight, raw material usage, and lower transportation costs. Using fewer components may result in reduced lead times and lower overall packaging cost.
