The 360 Paper Water Bottle 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.

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. Because the bottles are die-stamped together the six-pack formation does not require a separate six-pack carrier for the bottles. Natural structural board creates the shipping containers, reducing the material used in palletizing the water bottles, and the paper board tag, which may be snapped off, provides space for marketing copy.

Do you think paper water bottles will soon replace plastic ones?

i don't think so.

Sounds like a good idea.

Are the used bottles recyclable? They may or may not be with the micro-thin PLA film in them.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 7:26:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I doubt it.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 11:08:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
I highly doubt it, but they /might/
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 11:51:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
I hope so.




I don't exactly "like" our local water, but I still drink it because I can't add my bottle to that pile.

It's a shame but I don't think so.

The article didn't say, but I think the point is that they degrade quickly and won't sit in the landfills for thousands of years. It said that PLA film biodegrades easily. So even if you can't recycle them (but if they took off I bet they'd find a way) they are still better because they'll eventually break down.

Well, I know plastic is really a big pollutor of ours...but if that happened, where would all the trees go??????????
We'd be cutting down even more trees than we already do! And stuff that are biodegradable, aren't always good for the earth. It just means it turns into little pieces and eventually disapears...but it doesn't bring any minerals to the earth...so, I don't like that idea...they should get a better one...

soon i doubt it.. eventually i hope so

does it matter, they aren't made of OIL, WHICH COULD BE USED FOR BETTER THINGS

Interesting concept, but I dont think they will completely replace plastic bottles
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 9:50:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe eventually, I wouldn't say SOON though.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 12:38:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Probably not soon, but I'm sure it could happen one day.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/09 - 4:22:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
when paper gets wet, it gets all smushy. so no

I don't know, but I hope that tap water replaces bottled water. Bottled water is the most ridiculous scam in a long time. We should all just drink tap water.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 2/21/09 - 11:36:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
not SOON you can be sure they will rush them into use too soon and the dang pieces of crap will LEAK. And people will quit buying them and that'll be the end of that.
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/1/09 - 7:27:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Similar thought, but with an even MORE green twist...

Would You Drink Bottled Water If It Came in a Recyclable Paper Container?
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/1/09 - 11:04:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Uh...I don't think paper water bottles would work too well.
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/1/09 - 11:17:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's preferable to plastic, if it does, but it's still a huge waste of resources. Bottling and transporting something you can get from the tap for free isn't exactly ecologically/financially sound, no matter what the container is.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/10 - 5:26:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, I still prefer plastic water bottles.
I recycle them, however.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/10 - 5:39:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
this looks like a rather neat idea.


I'd hope they catch on.
