Option to get a super environmentally friendly package


#1

Hey there

I think it would be cool to have an option at checkout to receive bottles without a label at all. I’m not sure why there is all that plastic around the bottle when it’s not really needed.


#2

The bottles need to be tamper evident so someone can’t open it, put something in it, close it again, and pass it off as new.


#3

Not to mention it holds the cap on during shipping and handling.


#4

We have to be able to add in our own logo and the law requires us to have tamper seals.


#5

Doesn’t the foil seal under the cap function as a tamper-evident seal? Not even consumer pharmaceuticals use both an external perforated plastic seal and an under-cap foil seal.

Could the Soylent logo/labal be printed directly on the plastic bottle? Or printed on a sticker? Or printed on the top of the cap? Or, if the external seal is absolutely necessary, printed on that?


#6

The foil seal was a temporary solution; Coffiest doesn’t have it and (new) 2.0 doesn’t either.

Probably, yeah, but that’s not the decision they made.


#7

The cost of printing on the bottle are very high. It also limits our future plan for the design. The outer plastic layer does meet the requirements for a tamper evident seal.


#8

I always thought it’d be neat if they laser printed the label directly into the plastic and have a smaller wrapper just around the top like some medicine bottles have.


#9

The label should be embedded in the bottle and the bottle should be edible. Like those bread bowls for spinach dip.
