    Hi all I am currently in a Sustainability in Print and Packaging research based class at my university. We are to reverse engineer a package that appeals to us and essentially trace what is in the packaging and how it is made. Would you guys know of any sites/articles where I could find this information?

    I have the packaging so I know whats in the package. I meant more along the lines of what specifically it's made out of and how it's made.

    If you have the packaging in your hands, shouldn't that be kind of obvious? Folded cardboard, styrofoam, and plastic wrap are pretty ubiquitous...

    Yes but we need to know how such materials are dyed, how they are produced, how much recycled material goes into them etc etc...

    Oh. I don't think you're going to be able to find information to that level of detail without contacting them directly. You could start here for an overview:
