It’s no secret that plastic waste is a huge problem for the environment. In addition to food packaging, cosmetic and toiletry products are some of the many items that are filling up landfills and polluting oceans. That’s why Berlin-based product designer Jonna Breitenhuber decided to come up with a zero waste alternative to plastic bottles. She created SOAPBOTTLE—packaging made from soap.

The simple, colorful soap forms are made from natural ingredients and hold liquid such as shampoo and shower gel. However, you won’t need to bring these containers to the trash when they’re empty. Users simply cut the corner of the soap bottles using the integrated, reusable metal closure, and pour the product out. Once the content is used up, the soap packaging itself can be used as hand soap or processed into detergents. It gradually dissolves over time, leaving no waste behind.
