To solve this problem of plastic needs a paradigm shift in every level, from manufacturing to consumption and from the country to grass-root levels.
A social organization, The Paper Water Bottle, invented by Jim Warner and his son James, now introduces an innovation in water bottle design that will change the environment positively and it could be a trend-setting product in future.
This is indeed a welcome move which we have been waiting for a long time; we can call it a revolution in water bottles!
