    The United Kingdom will soon start having its milk stored in eco-friendly bottles at supermarkets with the GreenBottle by Suffolk-based Martin Mysercough. Plastic bottles will soon be a thing of the past, as these green packaging take their place instead. The GreenBottle uses an outer shell made from recycled paper while a thinner plastic lining inside is used to store the milk. The bottles will hit store shelves at all Asda outlets soon. The outer shelf can be thrown out and recycled again. The shell also decomposes in a few weeks time. Unlike an average plastic bottle that takes around 500 years to decompose, the GreenBottle does not harm the environment too much.

    The bottle gains inspiration from papier-mache balloons, the GreenBottle has a carbon footprint 48 per cent lower than that of a standard milk bottle. A better way to store milk on the shelf, the GreenBottle is an innovative way to keep plastic bottles out of landfills.
