    Default Paper Bottles?

    http://gizmodo.com/5861146/will-wine...a-paper-bottle

    Interesting article about bottles made of paper. The inside is actually lined with the material wine bags are made of.

    That's neat. I wonder how the corking works?

    Gonna have to plastic coat them or something, else I see the bottles having issues with moisture and decomposing...

    They are lined with the same bladder that gets used for wine in a box.

    I know the article says it has '10% of the carbon footprint" but what about the renewability of the process. I just know that paper is made from trees and glass is made from silica, one of the most common elements on the planet.
