June 11, 2021
Plastic packaging has long been the obvious choice for many liquid products brands — such as body wash, lotion, beverages, shampoo etc. Without a doubt, plastic is durable, inexpensive and most importantly — it does not absorb liquids. However, as the awareness on the sustainable packaging rises — the consumers have started demanding sustainable alternatives. That is where paper bottles come in.
According to the report by Statista — the world’s plastics production totalled around 368 million metric tonnes in 2019 and continues to rise. The main reason for the increase in plastic production is plastic packaging. Providing a solution to this very significant and catastrophic environmental issue of single-use plastic, the homegrown Noida-based startup — Kagzi Bottles is pioneering a completely new product category: a 100% compostable paper bottle, which is also the first-of-its-kind in India. This innovative solution will give consumers a greener and cleaner switch from plastic to paper pulp. The bottle can be used to package beverages, toiletries, liquids and powder.
The brain behind this sustainable alternative is Ms. Samiksha Ganeriwal, the founder of Kagzi Bottles.
Over the past one year — many multinational companies have come up with unique and sustainable alternatives to plastic bottles. Some of these companies even launched the bottles while others developed prototype. However, these bottles still had a thin inner layer of plastic to provide a moisture barrier and resistance to other environmental factors. This is where Kagzi Bottles are distinctive — they are developing 100% biodegradable paper bottle using waste paper.
According to a media report, Kagzi Bottles is procuring waste paper from a Himachal-based company. It is currently producing paper bottles for shampoos, conditioners and lotions.
