Biodegradable water bottles market: Overview
According to the estimates, more than 8 million tonnes of plastic litter is dumped into the ocean every year, damaging aquatic life. One of the worst culprits of single-use plastic is plastic water bottles that are discarded as soon as the drink is finished. These plastic water bottles take between 400 to 1000 years to degrade. Introduction of biodegradable water bottles is a significant step towards curbing the pollution caused by plastic. Biodegradable water bottles are made from organic materials such as algae, bamboo, husks, bulrush, recycled paper, sugarcane pulp and biodegradable plastic bottles are made from PLA (polylactic acid), PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoates), and biodegradable PET. Biodegradable water bottles are an ideal choice as they decompose within 80 days. Biodegradable water bottles do not leave behind any micro-particles or leach heavy metals in the environment. These bottles are made from sustainable materials and do not use fossil fuel for its production. Biodegradable water bottles are considered a significant breakthrough in combating the trash problem that is plaguing the oceans. Biodegradable water bottles market is expected to increase as many companies will adopt an environmentally friendly packaging solution for storage and transport of water.
