Papier-mache is no longer just for primary school art projects: eco-nuts in Suffolk have decided to start packaging wine in the stuff. You could soon be supping a fine Rioja poured from an oblong paper shell lined with a plastic bag, thanks to British start-up GreenBottle.

I guess that's ok for the substandard 'quick n easy' grocery-store wines, but somehow I don't think that they would hold up for years in a wine cellar...

Wonder why they are lined with plastic and not beeswax? At least beeswax is eminiently recycleable...

Just a variation of bag-in-a-box. Probably great for wino fights. "Stand back or I'll give you a paper cut!"
