This bottle is fully biodegradable. It’s made from algae and has been developed by a student in Iceland. A great innovation.
Given that a million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and this number is predicted to increase by 20% by 2021. And fewer than half of the bottles bought in 2016 were collected for recycling and just 7% of those collected were turned into new bottles. Instead most plastic bottles produced end up in landfill or in the ocean.
