New environmental friendly bottles made from paper

The 360 paper water bottle from Brand Image is an attempt to address 60 million plastic bottles thrown away daily in the United States (of which 86% become garbage). The paper vessel is made from 100% renewable food-safe resources, fully recyclable and versatile in a number of potential liquid categories. It utilizes sustainable sheet stock made of bamboo, palm leaves, and other natural plants which is pressed into 2 halves to encapsulate a micro-thin PLA film that provides liquid/O2 barrier. PLA stands for poly-lactic acid, which is highly degradable.

The bottle top, which incorporates a sanitary plug to reseal the bottle, is torn off at the top. Once the plug is removed the torn paper stays tethered to the bottle to eliminate litter.
