Infinitely recyclable alternative to plastic packaging

Ball Corporation, an American company well known for its innovative, sustainable packaging solutions, has announced the launch of a new impact-extruded aluminum bottle line – “Infinity Aluminum Bottle” – that provides a circular solution to plastic pollution. The new bottles are available in a range of sizes and formats and can be customized for numerous beauty, personal care, food, and beverage products.

In addition, Ball’s aluminum bottles are infinitely recyclable and can be turned into other aluminum products over and over again. Each Infinity Bottle comes with a re-closable threaded cap that allows consumers to twist the top on and off.

Plastic waste that ends up in the natural environment has led to more public discussion about packaging, its life cycle, and recyclability,” said Jason Galley, director of innovation and sustainability Ball. “Consumers are demanding more environmentally friendly solutions for packaging their everyday products. We combined our product design and sustainable aluminum packaging expertise to develop another truly circular packaging solution – the Infinity Aluminum Bottle.

The Infinity Aluminum Bottle line consists of only one material and can be easily sorted and recycled. As per the company, the material can be recycled an infinite number of times without losing quality, which also prevents it from becoming waste and ending up in the ocean or in landfills.

After use, an aluminum bottle can be recycled and returned as a new packaging format in just 60 days, and it can also be recycled to take on a new life as another aluminum product. The Infinity Bottles include shampoos and conditioners, soaps, body creams, spirits, energy shots, yogurt, dressings, syrups, condiments, and more.
