    It was last year when we first heard about the paper Coke bottle. The company has just released the functional prototype. Although it still has a thin layer of plastic, it's mostly made of paper. The cap and the most inner part of the bottle are made of plastic. In fact, Coca-Cola's objective is to develop packaging that is 100% recyclable. They will be used to store not only drinks, but also cosmetics.

    The research has been done by Paboco, a Dannish company specializing if eco-friendly packaging

    In the second quarter of 2021 the first 2000 bottles are to reach the customers. The bottle will be tested by Hunbgarians and they will contain a drink called Adez. The company promises that by 2030 it will have completely removed non-recyclable materials and it will rely solely on the recyclable ones. Many other major corporations have got similar goals.

    The company has released a video summing up the works on the prototype.

    Do you think this solution will catch on?
