Square Soda Can to reduce carbon footprint
by Mark R
I think we are all are trying to reduce our “carbon footprint”, even if we aren’t certain what that is.
Who cares? It has something to do with saving the planet, which is always a good thing, isn’t it?
I mean, that’s why you recycle your cans, right? Or at least you should be recycling your cans. Imagine if you were using square cans.
That’s right, someone has come up with a way of making a square can. This bottle has an opening at the bottom of the bottle that will allow multiple bottles to be stacked, which will reduce the amount of space needed to be stacked.
You may also notice that it collapses quite nicely, and it is 66 percent smaller. Of course, these guys look less like cans and more like bottles.
This actually reminds me of a little-seen film that Disney/Touchstone produced called Mission to Mars. It came out in 2000, and it didn’t exactly inspire us to get to the red planet by the end of the decade. However, that film took place in 2020, and it portrayed ordinary soda cans as rectangular solids.
Well, let’s hope we can have something to reduce our carbon footprint in the next few years like this. As for Mars, well, we are preparing with a special simulator.
