People are already collecting milk cartons. That's pretty much the same thing. The paper bottle idea is interesting although I'm not so sure how much of an improvement it'll be in terms of plastic waste. It's basically a juice box and the mix of materials in those things makes them harder to recycle than standard plastic bottles. I'd much rather see them returning to reusable glass bottles like the ones we collect.

It just shows you the ignorance of humans when you have this biodegradable plant based material at your fingertips and you choose to use toxic materials because of reasons I can only contribute to the all mighty dollar

A little further research shows the people responsible for the said prohibition of the aforementioned plant also had financial ties to the plastics and chemical corporations of the day , who’s products were threatened by this sustainable and renewable resource. Yes it was all about $$$$$$ , sad but true.
