retail news in context, analysis with attitude

CNN reports that Danish beer company Carlsberg has "revealed two new recyclable prototypes of the sustainably-sourced wood fiber bottle it hopes to eventually bring to market."

Yup. Carlsberg wants to sell beer in paper containers.

"One version is lined with a thin film of recycled PET plastic to keep beer from seeping out. The other uses a bio-based lining. The prototypes will be used to test the linings.

"For Carlsberg, the innovation is a way to lower its impact on the environment and present consumers with an interesting new option."
