For the Love of Scotch
The world's first 100% paper-based spirit bottle
Known among whisky lovers as one of the premium blends, Johnnie Walker is all set for a makeover. The brand with a legacy of over 200 years will release the famed scotch whisky in what’s being billed as ‘the world’s first 100% paper-based spirit bottle’. The bottle will be recyclable and plastic-free. The initiative is a collaboration between Diageo, and Pulpex limited, a sustainable packaging technology company.

The Dabba Solution
The plastic free tiffin carrier
For those dwelling under a rock, Zogam Bamboo Works, a Manipur-based start-up has created a plastic-free tiffin carrier and netizens can't contain their excitement. Made entirely out of bamboo shoots, this eco-friendly alternative has several compartments, each secured with placeholders to prevent leakage. Currently, there are two varieties available—one to store dry ingredients and the other for storing gravies.

The carriers are priced at Rs599 and Rs799, respectively. 

Pinch of Qmin
Taj Hotels is the latest in the hospitality industry to introduce food delivery services. After a successful stint in Mumbai, Qmin recently made its grand debut in Delhi. Guests can now order from their eight iconic restaurants. Plans are underway to expand the services to Bengaluru, Chennai and Kolkata. The Qmin mobile was also recently unveiled in Mumbai followed by the Qmin Shop, offering epicurean specialties and authentic artisanal brands. A loyalty program will also be launched in September to bring the magic of Taj cuisine to the homes of its patrons. Visit for more information.
