This is a screenshot of my packaging design in Sketchup.

How can our understanding of geometry help us reduce our carbon footprint?

Our understanding of geometry can help us reduce our carbon footprint because if we know how to maximize our use of space, then we won’t be wasting as many materials, such as paper, which contributes to deforestation. Also, if we know how to create a net with correct precision then we won’t have to waste materials trying to figure out the correct net for the packaging. To reduce our carbon footprint, we can also try to use more eco-friendly materials. However, with different materials you might have to adapt the geometric design of the packaging to suit the material better.
