I wrote emails to William McDonough‘s contact person and a person at Melcher Media regarding the material used for Durabooks. Wouldn’t it be fab if we could convince a manufacturer to create a DigiPak using that material? A DuraPak? We prefer DigiPaks over Jewel Cases because so many Jewel Cases crack and break in transit. I also like the look of the DigiPak, but I would love it even more if it was non-tree material. I think it would hold up even better, judging by the Cradle to Cradle book I bought.
Update: a person at Melcher Media wrote back that they thought it was a nice idea and passed my email on to the Production Director. More and more artists/record companies are switching away from the Jewel Box these days. Maybe the “DuraPak” can become a reality!
