According to HowStuffWorks: "All of those milk jugs, pizza boxes and egg cartons really pile up — food wrapping and containers contribute to a significant chunk of the 23 percent of packaging-related landfill additions each year. Fortunately, although overall waste has continued to rise about 20 percent, packaging waste has actually decreased, in large part because manufacturers have learned how to more smartly encase their products. Now, forward-thinking scientists are being even more proactive about the issue by steering away from traditional packaging in favor of edible alternatives."

In the past on The Dieline we've followed the emerging trend of the anti-packaging movement which has led us to continually wonder, is the future of packaging no packaging at all? We've rounded up 11 examples of edible packaging ideas that are helping shape the future of the industry.
