That this container functions without a bottle cap speaks to its eco-conscience

Every insignificant thing we consume that is packaged in typical plastic takes hundreds of years to degrade. A stylish new prototype of a reusable container container called Nephentes doesn't let you forget its designer's original manifesto against plastic waste.

Designer Marilu Valente of Merged Vertice has often observed that, in terms of recycling, “in the cosmetics sector, the containers are especially problematic; usually their unique function is to attract the consumer’s attention.” Her response to this has been to create a container for soaps, shampoo and the like that is equally eye-catching but designed to be reusable and recyclable.
