Title: RE:tie packaging reuse design concept

RE:tie is a unique reusable packaging design concept based on the bottle/jar cap/lid packing system known as tamper-evident security closure, which is in common usage with many fast moving consumer goods and other packaged products worldwide. Usually discarded after unzipping (having fulfilled its original function), the closure can now be reused as a cable tie (with countless reuses around the home or work environment) due to our simple redesign (patent applied for). The design won a gold medal at the International Inventions Show 2007.
