The Choose Water bottle, developed by a British scientist James Longcroft, aims to replace plastic bottles and help save the world’s oceans from plastic waste.

The outer case is made from 100% recycled sustainably sourced paper pulp, while the waterproof inner lining is made from fully biodegradable and sustainable materials – the exact details of the composition is a closely guarded secret whilst patents are still pending. The company claims the inner lining is actually beneficial to the environment, neutralising soil acidity and providing nutrients to aquatic environments.

All elements of the bottle will fully biodegrade within ‘a few months’, whether they end up in the ocean or landfill. They don’t leave behind toxic micro-particles, or leach heavy metals into the environment

The steel cap on the bottle will also rust and fully decompose within a year whereas, plastic usually takes hundreds of years to break down.
