An increasing demand for reusable packaging has driven the development of DW Reusables NV’s lastest innovation: Bottlebee. The reusable bottlebridge reduces water and carbon dioxide emissions from beverage six-packs and doubles the convenience of cardboard bottlebridges. Bottlebee works with full, sealed bottles as well as with empty bottles with no bottle cap. The innovation holds bottles tight below the top, unlike conventional carton versions that are held in place by the bottle cap, the company says. The cardboard is easily removed by tilting the bottle and taking it out. Additionally, the packaging is brandable for optimal product visibility at the point of sale and can be stacked two layers high. It’s also compatible with existing beverage crates as the Bottlebee is placed on the bottles in the crates and can be designed for any shape of bottle or crate. Supporting a circular economy, Bottlebee can be made from post-consumer material or regrind plastics and will last for years before being completely recycled into a new Bottlebee, according to the company. Furthermore, an independent study showed that Bottlebee with reusable glass bottles reduces carbon dioxide 64% compared with conventional packaging.
