100% compostable water bottles, bottled on demand

The Challenge

Over 480 billion plastic bottles were sold in 2019. In addition to the plastic waste, unnecessarily transporting  water is very costly both economically and environmentally.

The number of plastic bottles manufactured each year is enough to wrap around the Equator 2,500 times. The current system of manufacturing bottled drinks in one facility and distributing them thousands of miles away is highly inefficient, significantly increasing costs as well as carbon emissions.

The Solution

bottle

Using kiosks to manufacture beverages   on the spot reduces transportation and plastic waste.

Bottling water on the spot using purified local water sources allows for the same number of bottles to be transported at 1/20th of the weight and 1/10th of the volume of traditional ready-made water bottles. The bottles are 100% compostable from the cap to the paper shell printed with soy ink.

 

Consumers can also simply refill their own bottle with their selected beverage.

Industry disrupting bottling process

The decentralized model cuts out middlemen and unnecessary resource waste, setting a new industry standard. 

Reinventing the bottling process to be on-demand and onsite makes the bottling process substantially more efficient than traditional methods. The result is a truly sustainable water bottle from its manufacturing process to the paper bottle itself which is designed not to last.
