Gallery: Reusable Recycled Paper Water Bottles for the Milano Expo 2015


Several million people are expected to attend the Milan 2015 Expo, but don’t think that the majority will be toting along a reusable water bottle for the festivities. Designed to cut down on the plastic waste sure to overwhelm the Italian city, Andrea Ponti has created “The Life”, a recycle paper water bottle that can carry water and then once again be recycled at the end of a day’s use.

Each bottle has been formed with natural cotton and a recycled paper layer, and printed and sealed with non-toxic natural inks and adhesives. Each bottle has a convenient carrying cord allowing it to be slung over your neck or shoulder. Ponti’s proposal also considers watersources and refilling, where water fountains will be placed in strategic locations around Milan allowing people to fill up throughout the day.
