Reusable, recyclable plastic bottle

BE O aims to radically change the plastic industry by developing reusable plastic products made from bioplastics. Their first product is a reusable water bottle made from the residual waste from sugarcane and coloured with natural pigments, including soot pigment and the pigment of white shells.

The product is 100% recyclable in the current waste stream and can also be recycled with current PolyEthylene made from fossil oil.
