Taking small steps toward greater environmental protection
Edible juice bottle made from potato peelings
Sweden-based startup Tomorrow Machine has developed a bottle made from a potato starch-based material called "GoneShells." The "GoneShells" container is designed to store food products such as juice. Once empty, the bottle can be peeled off like an orange peel and eaten, composted or dissolved in water and disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. The packaging is currently in a prototype stage. Together with juice company Eckes Granini, there are plans to use the prototype for Granini's Brämhults brand in the future.
