Help Save Our Planet” is our corporate pledge to people around the world. Paper
Water Bottle is our brand name. It’s also the namesake of our inaugural package
epitomizing our mission and brand promise. We invented a water containment made
of a compostable pulp shell, OTR/MVTR barrier, closure, and label. We have been
awarded 16 global patents en route for our packaging to be Backyard

billion plastic bottles being produced annually, over 80 percent ending up in
landfills or oceans, and the harsh reality that it will take 800 years to
biodegrade. Imagine the possibilities… We do!
Water Bottle began as early as 2005, when creator, Jim Warner, a global
designer and brand creator, told the story of a walk he took with his son in
the city one day. His eight-year-old son asked, “What do you do for a living?”
Warner replied, “I design and make bottles and packaging for people.” His son
looked down at some litter on the sidewalk and asked, “You make trash?”
then realized the reality of his son’s innocent question. He imagined the
inevitability of a container that addresses the growing concern over plastic,
both its petroleum sourcing and its disposition in landfills. In 2009, Dan
Doster, his own success in branding, pricing, marketing, and management,
encountered Warner during his time at an international branding firm for which
Jim then served as Managing Director of Industrial Design. Doster saw the
potential of Warner’s vision and quickly took steps to advance Paper Water
Bottle. Doster formed the company and acquired the patent application rights to
Paper Water Bottle exists as a company to enhance other company’s
sustainability efforts through pulp packaging to help brand owners and
packaging managers, manufacturers, and consumers achieve their packaging goals.
Its 16 global patents for liquid containment in a molded fiber shell stand as
an alternative to plastic bottles, which, though obviously appealing to a
consumer need for on-the-go convenience and usability, are nevertheless
increasingly perceived as negative for the industry and the environment.
80 billion plastic bottles are produced annually and 80 percent of those end up
in the oceans and landfills that then take 800 years to biodegrade. While these
statistics are well known, not enough is done to change the outcome. Solving
the problem of plastic requires a paradigm shift at every level: country,
industry, and consumer. To accomplish this, an easily understood “big idea” is
needed to drive change.
is made from nonrenewable petroleum and lingers far too long—hundreds or even
thousands of years past its usefulness. Plastic thrives because the market
lacks a viable substitute, one that matches it for convenience of production,
distribution, sale, and use. Whether in transport, on the store shelf, or in
the vending machine, Paper Water Bottle is that alternative, and is an ode to our
mission: We Will Help Save Our Planet™.
Water Bottle is based on global patents that integrate specialized materials
and manufacturing processes to the highest level of compostable performance
specifications available. This intellectual property is known as Paper Water
Bottle Technology, which streamlines the production process between our Design
Group and Production Group to offer core components for brand owners to achieve
a customized molded fiber eco-friendly product.
The Paper Water Bottle exoskeleton pulp material is made from 100%
organic and sustainable combinations of plant-based fibers including bagasse,
bulrush, wheat straw and bamboo. Inside, Paper Water Bottle Technology has
established the means to reduce the amount of plastic that would normally be
used to make a water bottle. The long-term goal for the package’s content barrier is to have
nearly no plastic content, and to achieve substantially less material for the
is important to note that this design and prototype is the first generation of
Paper Water Bottle. Our eventual goal for Paper Water Bottle is to attain a
package that is Backyard Compostable™. This method will enable our
package to be returned to the earth as a unit. Paper Water Bottle hopes to
claim this audacious goal thanks to its globally patented design and the
steadfast efforts of its development team. Paper Water Bottle exists as a
company to provide A Refreshing Alternative™ for marketers, for brand
owners and packaging managers, for manufacturers, and for consumers. We’ve
redefined how world-class designers, engineers, innovators, consumer and
business strategists, materials scientists and manufacturers work together
to exceed expectations.
the summer of 2015, the team completed a successful design. By the fall of 2015,
produced a manufactured prototype for review of the first generation Paper
Water Bottle. In November 2015, the container received recognition as a
finalist in the 2015 Global FoodBev Awards, representing the environmentally
sustainable packaging category. Paper Water Bottle is positioned to reach
viable product in 2016. With strategic partnerships ranging from raw material
producers, manufacturing and co-packing companies, compostable label and ink
suppliers, and many hopeful customers that want a better bottle, Paper Water
Bottle is geared to serve as a leading package provider for beverage companies
seeking a more sustainable, eco-friendly product, and A Refreshing Alternative.
Truly sustainable, we might be looking at the future of water bottles.
This concept is partly revolution of packaging design industry. It is a very good example for packaging design in the future, that every designers should realize how packaging design meet the environment (sustainable) and functional effectively.
