Al Ain Plant-Based Bottle
In February 2020, Abu Dhabi-based Agthia Group announced that it will be producing the region’s first plant-based water bottle for its Al Ain bottled water brand. The bottle, including the cap, is made of 100% environmentally friendly material from plant sources without using petroleum or its by-products, thereby lowering its CO2 footprint. The product will be biodegradable and compostable within 80 days. Agthia says that the manufacturing process consumes 60% less energy and achieves more than 50% savings on non-renewable energy.
