The paper bottle starts manufacturing and can greatly reduce the use of plastic on the planet. Based on 2020 statistics, it is estimated that more than 500,000 million plastic bottles will be produced in 2021. Although most of them are made from recycled plastic, the consumption is higher than the recycling measures that can be taken. Then there are the glass bottles. A plastic bottle can take up to 1,000 years to degrade, a glass bottle up to 4,000 years.
The paper bottle
The drink wrapped in paper is already known, with examples such as milk or juices that get into our hands packaged in tetras. However, this type of container is not suitable for carbonated beverages. Coca Cola has been working in combination with Paboco for two years. You are looking for the best paper bottle for packaging carbonated bottles. They want to launch a series of bottles in Hungary to test public acceptance.
The bottle is made of biodegradable cardboard pulp. Finally, it is covered by a thin layer of recycled plastic that prevents the liquid from damaging the box. It is not an end product, improvements will certainly be made that will be carried out on the fly until the end product is launched. This project is part of the initiative to reduce pollution by 30% by 2030.
What is Paboco?
Paboco or Paper Bottel Company is a company founded in Denmark in 2019. They also want to solve some problems that threaten the planet’s biodiversity. Because of this, they try to make packaging for various products that is sustainable. The features of the paper bottle designed so far are as follows:
- Degradable and can be recycled.
- Attractive to the public.
- Printed with sustainable ink or laser engraving.
- Resistant to high pressure.
- With a strong and biodegradable cap.
Other products that will soon also be packaged in paper bottles
Different brands are interested in being part of the project. Loreal and Absolut are some of them. Danish and British beer brands plan to design a paper bottle for their beer. You have also implemented other measures that indicate the same purpose.
Eco-label ink, replacement of the plastic container for the six-packs and replacement of the aluminum can with containers of the same type as the paper bottle. The wine and vodka industry also shares their projects to have their own bottle to replace the classic glass.
