Ecologic Brands is an Oakland, Calif.-based designer and manufacturer of paper bottles. Its latest launch, the 750ml eco.vintage bottle, is intended as an innovative solution that turns waste to value by upcycling used cardboard into a recyclable and compostable bottle shell. Inside is a thin pouch designed to lower landfill waste while offering barrier properties needed to pack wine, spirits, oils and other oxygen-sensitive products. Weighing 85 percent less than a glass bottle, the eco.vintage offers benefits throughout the supply chain while standing out on store shelves, according to the company. www.ecologicbrands.com
