New Soap, Old Bottle
Amron Experimental is a design company based in New York who have the courage to do something that the big companies who frequent our supermarket shelves are too scared to do.
They sell a variety of brand name liquid soaps in old bottles, drastically cutting down on waste and other unnecessary packaging.
'New Soap, Old Bottle' is a great example of a simple yet extremely effective idea which benefits both nature and your hip pocket in equal measures.
Less packaging + less freight + less manufacturing = cheaper, greener, and smarter. That is the kind of combination that Oblong really likes.
There isn't a great deal of shipping info on their website but they are contactable, and all things aside it is a bloody inspirational idea!
