In an effort to reduce plastic use, product designer Jonna Breitenhuber has conceived of Soapbottle, a zero-waste container for liquids. The colored packaging is made of soap that will degrade over time. It leaves no waste, unlike traditional plastic vessels, which often contribute to the truckload of waste that’s dumped into the ocean every minute. Each bottle features a hole near the top for a string to pass through, providing a simple and reusable storage method. When the liquid is gone, the bottles can be grated and used for body wash or detergent. Follow Breitenhuber’s eco-friendly designs on Instagram. You also might like these soap toiletry containers.
