Company Invents Recyclable Paper Bottle

paper bottle

I loathe plastic water bottles, but for some reason many otherwise rational people seem to love them. Fortunately, a company called Brandimage may save the day and reduce plastic waste with their paper bottle.

The 100 percent recyclable bottle recently received the prestigious International Design Excellence Award. In addition to being food-safe, the bottles stack and are re-sealable.

While it isn’t on sale yet, the 360 Paper Bottle might just cut into the 60 million plastic bottles thrown away each day in the US.
