Zero-Waste Packaging for Liquids is Made Entirely of Soap

December 19, 2019

Grace Ebert

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.

Bottles and Jars Made of Soap Replace Disposable Plastic Packaging

Mi Zhou, a student in the Central Saint Martins Material Futures master’s degree program, re-imagined the disposable nature of toiletry containers by turning the vessels themselves into usable products. Instead of the ubiquitous flexible plastic tubs and tubes that are filled with lotion, soap, and shampoo, Zhou’s creations are made of soap. In soft shades of mint green, peach, and yellow, the translucent containers sport sophisticated designs that bring to mind classic shapes of perfume bottles and powder boxes. To complete her concept Zhou consulted with Yanhao Shi, a soap artisan, and Luis Spitz, an expert in the soap industry. Read more about Zhou’s project on the Central Saint Martins Material Futures catalog. (via designboom)
