Cardboard Bottles

Did you know that the U.S. generated 30 million tons of plastic waste in 2009. That’s more than 12% of our total waste. Is cardboard a green alternative to all the plastic?

If all goes well, cardboard may take the place of plastic. See the post: Four Years In The Making, A Tough Cardboard Jug For Laundry Soap,

Besides being green, it’s a nod to good design. Here’s a great quote:

“Having this not look like crap was the hardest part.”

It’s also interesting to see that Apple’s iPhone (and specifically its packaging) was part of the inspiration.
