Coming soon: Wooden beer bottles

Carlsberg pushes eco-packaging a step past cans.

Yesterday, Today, tomorrowOh, you thought cans were the greenest thing in beer packaging? Denmark’s Carlsberg plans to up the ante with the first totally biodegradable beer bottle made from wood fiber.

Produced entirely from sustainably sourced wood fiber, the “Green Fiber Bottle”cap and all—will completely degrade in a landfill.

The three-year project marks a partnership between Carlsberg and packaging company Ecoxpac, a company that also produces fiber trays similar to egg crates. Ecoxpac’s website displays a small illustration of the Green Fiber Bottle, which doesn’t look like much beer packaging Americans are used to.

The only downside? You won’t get that 10 cents back in Michigan. :(
