This is interesting it’s a papier mache wine bottle. The bottle has been invented by British inventor Martin Myerscough who is currently in talks with supermarkets who he hopes will use his invention. Called the Greenbottle it is made completely of papier mache meaning it has a carbon footprint of just 10% of the equivalent glass wine bottle. It is biodegradable so you can compost it and it should break down within a few weeks. The bottle itself does not actually come into contact with the wine but includes a plastic liner within the box which is presumably not recyclable, similar to the idea of cardboard wine boxes which are currently available. It’s an interesting idea but I wonder how many wine manufacturers will choose to put their wine in paper bottles rather than glass ones.
