Our Solution

As P&G's fiber partner, we were tasked with designing & engineering an Earth-friendly razor tray for GilletteLabs with Exfoliating Bar.

  • P&G wanted to avoid the typical plastic material often used for similar products, and pursue an entirely recyclable packaging solution for this major product launch.
  • Footprint developed a product safe dye solution so that branding style and color palette could be maintained.  
  • Production engineering was customized to accommodate the manufacturing of the specialized fiber materials of this product, maximizing line capacity capability. 
  • The plant-based fiber razor tray is certified recyclable, causing no harm to the Earth. Footprint scaled production globally resulting in one of the largest product launches for Gillette in a decade.
