Scotch Magic A Greener Choice Glass Dispenser

Tape Dispenser


3M Company, France

Red Dot
The Scotch Magic A Greener Choice Glass Dispenser is a sustainable product that is constructed of only three parts. These are made of natural and recycled materials such as glass and pre-consumer plastic. Designed with a focus on simplicity of both, form and material, the tape dispenser allows for self-explanatory assembly and, eventually, for environmentally easy recycling. Due to it being made of glass, the dispenser is heavier than comparable products, but thereby it prevents slipping and, thus allows easy one-handed dispensing.

Statement by the jury

»The design of the tape dispenser realises the issue of sustainability formally, functionally and aesthetically. In addition, its use enhances the emotional experience of ecologically manufactured products.«
