Reinventing the bottle? No.

I've belatedly stumbled upon a (prototype?) design for readily-recyclable paper bottles (as opposed to waxed/plasticised paper cartons, recycling of which may be uneconomical).

I suppose it'd be good for one-use applications such as tiny bottles of shampoo provided by hotels, but as an everyday drinks container I feel it misses the point. Recycling is rational (not 'good'), but less so than reuse: what one really needs is a robust, washable container one could keep for years. If that bottle is recyclable, so much the better.
