Quite simply, Touch are re-engineering the detachable lid so that it is now undetachable! Throughout our previous work within the FMCG drinks industry, we have gained technical, in-depth knowledge of the lifecycle of the drinks bottle & cap. Inspired by the insight that detachable lids are problematic during the after-life of drinks bottles, we are developing a solution that leverages existing screw-cap technology with a specifically designed TETHER. The TETHER holds the detachable lid to the bottle neck, therefore the lid cannot be removed from the bottle it is attached to. This eliminates the existing problem of bottle caps being separated and finding their way outside of the recycling system.
