The New Plastic – ingeo ™

While visiting Cape Cod this summer, I came across a new plastic made from plants.  I used it in the form of a water bottle from Green Planet Beverages.  The material is called (and trademarked as) ingeo.  It’s a biopolymer that can basically take the place of polystyrene and even glass.  AND it’s 100% petroleum free…which probably sounds pretty good to several pelicans in the Gulf right now. 

Might want to ask your local grocery to stock this water for those times your reuseable water bottle won’t work.

I happened across a Green Planet water bottle too and would love to encourage the few people I know who still don’t use a reusable to use these instead but, I don’t know where to find them!! I haven’t seen them in ANY shop. Is there somewhere you know of that they actually sell them in? Or any online store?

They are available at various locations. Nature’s Bottles is one company that produces bottled water using ingeo. Enjoy!
