Cove is a material innovation company developing the first biodegradable water bottle. A million plastic bottles are thrown away every minute and half the plastics we produce are for single-use packaging. Cove has changed that by launching the world's first truly biodegradable water bottle. Cove developed the world’s first biodegradable water bottle made of PHA — a plastic alternative produced by living organisms found in the ocean, plants, and even the human body. PHA is biodegradable, naturally-occurring, and produces zero toxic waste as it breaks down. To Cove, material innovation involves extensive research and development to reinvent the way products are made, used and discarded.
