The nicest piece of technology I have used all week

Innocent Smoothie

I have a lovely Macbook Pro laptop, a decent camera, dual-core work PC and an iPod, but the nicest piece of technology I have used all week is this: a drinks bottle.

I picked it up on the way to work this morning (mostly because I’m getting over a cold and wanted something healthy, and I chose this in particular because it proudly describes itself as a “thickie”, nicely reclaiming a playground insult as a positive word!), and it turns out the whole bottle isn’t plastic, but corn. And it’s 100% corn – there is no plastic used whatsoever, amazingly.

According to the Innocent website, the bottle will decompose in about six weeks in the right composting conditions, and they even have the pictures to prove it.

All in all, a lovely piece of design and technology. And the drink was top too. Although I maintain it’s not breakfast in a bottle unless bacon is involved.

  1. Woah, I’ve never noticed that on the bottle, very impressive stuff! Pity I can’t really have smoothie’s on my current healthy eating plan, but no doubt I’ll give in at some point 😉
