Aquamantra Premium Bottled Water has introduced their new 100% biodegradable, recyclable and compostable plastic bottle.
Made by Phoenix-based Enso Bottles LLC ,these new bottles are made of polyethylene terephthalate, not made from polylactic acid, and and are being marketed at Whole Foods Market in Tustin, California.
Containing an organic additive developed by Enso that attracts microbial colonization, the bottles will break down within 10 months in landfills through anaerobic or aerobic decomposition. They also will biodegrade in a compostable environment in 250 days.
According to Aquamantra, these T water bottles can be recycled with PET containers.
Though I prefer not buying bottled water at all, this is definitely a step forward and a much better choice than the traditional petroleum-based plastic you see out there. Way to go Aquamantra and Enso!
