This isÂ really exciting news!Â AÂ Taiwanese company called O’right usesÂ biodegradable bottles madeÂ fromÂ a plastic-like starch processed from fruit, plant and vegetable waste, and makes hair care products out of used coffee grounds. Seeds embedded in the plug at the bottom of the bottles can sprout into trees two or three months after the empty bottles are buried in the ground. It’s a fantastic green initiative that seems to permeate the entire company’s operations.
As I have said before, one of the primary reasons why I don’t make liquid products is because of the whole issue surrounding throwaway plastic bottles that will eventually clog up landfills and end up on our waterways. If truly biodegradable alternatives to plastic packaging are readily available in the near future,Â I’d certainly be more open to the idea of trying to make liquid soap. 🙂
