Based in Edinburgh, Choose Packaging is a packaging development company that is striving to minimise plastic pollution by offering plastic-free alternatives to everyday products. They have developed a plastic free paper bottle to help consumers and businesses move away from plastic.
The technology utilises their patented paper bottle technology - a paper casing lined with a plant-based waterproof plastic free liner. All the materials used to make their bottles are 100% natural, sustainable and vegan-friendly which will take less than a year, instead of a few centuries to degrade.
Their technology is being developed to hold a wide variety of liquid products from alcohol/ soft drinks, household/domestic cleaning products to cosmetics and beauty.
