This diploma thesis covers the development of sustainable packaging for fruits and vegetables made out of eco-friendly materials, which could replace traditional plastic bags, made out of unrenewable resources, currently used in shops and malls. The theoretical part of the paper covers sorting of packaging, the impact of packaging on the environment, the pros of sustainable packaging and sustainable materials and also various examples of sustainable packaging for fruits and vegetables. The practical part covers tests conducted on two types of paper used to determine their basic, structural and mechanical properties. The results have shown that sample V₁ recycled paper with 160 g/m² grammage is best suited for our purposes. Both types of paper have suitable mechanical properties, V₁ however, also exhibits better wetness resistance. The design work was done with Adobe Illustrator, in which we created the shape, size and template of the packaging. Based on the material research and original idea we designed a prototype packaging for fruits and vegetables following the guidelines of ecological design. The final packaging is compact, suitable for transport and eco-friendly.
