All of us know the feeling of getting to the end of a bottle of shampoo or body wash, and not being able to get the last of the product out no matter how hard we shake the bottle.
Now, a company called LiquiGlide has designed a bottle that’s slippery on the inside, so you’ll get every last drop of product.
This was achieved by adding a non-toxic layer of lubricant to the inside of the bottle, which helps eliminate friction and help get all the product out.
It’s also a great eco-conscious initiative, as recycling companies can’t recycle bottles with products still in them. As per Input, bottles often end up in landfills because they haven’t been cleaned before being recycled.
“We all think when we throw a bottle into a recycling bin it will get recycled, but recycling is almost impossible when product is left behind and you need a significant amount of water to clean it. So the reality is that some of this packaging actually ends up in a landfill,” Kripa Varanasi, co-founder of LiquiGlide, told Fast Company.
Recycling aside, most shampoos, conditioners, or facial products don’t come cheap. Customers have done everything to get all of the product out, including cutting bottles into halves to scoop out remnants.
The new bottle will help reduce product waste, as well as create a much more convenient way of ensuring you’ve used up everything.
Previously, the company worked with Colgate on a slippery toothpaste tube, and has said it’s currently in discussions with personal care brands to manufacture its bottles on a large scale.
Hopefully, companies will be receptive to these eco-friendly, cost-saving bottles, so it’ll be good for both our wallets and the planet.
