Paper Bottles

We all try to do our bit by recycling our plastic bottles but it seems it amounts to around 14% of the total 60 million plastic bottles thrown away each day (in the USA anyway). What we do recycle helps but the rest ends up in our land fill. A lot of that 60 million are water bottles.

So, how about paper bottles? Design company ‘Brandimage’ have come up with a concept bottle made entirely of renewable and recycled paper which is strong enough to contain liquid. Not surprisingly this just received an International Design Excellence Award.

Put into production, and accepted by us as a design icon, this might just be the tool to remove all those plastic water bottles from the supermarket shelves - and the land fill!
