For the Love of Scotch
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
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.
