Stuff is being done...
Two zero waste stores have just been opened near me and they're really popular, there's stuff like the extinction rebellions and even people like you online!

We just need to keep going down the right path, emailing companies and boycotting them if they don't change and educating others whilst making as many sustainable choices in our own life where we can

There aren't alternative to plastics. You can't have a paper bottle of water can you?

28% plant based plastic and 15% plastic film. Neither are biodegradable. Sure you can recycle the bottle you can recycle current coke bottles. The facilities don't exist to recycle them and bottles get dumped. Just Water can still be dumped. It'll do as much damage

Lots of things are being done. All the plastic won't just immediately disappear. It'll take a very long time for us to see any noticeable impact of our attempts in trying to reduce plastic. Just do what you can to limit your plastic use and that'll be helpful.

Was talking more about the fact that you said you can't make paper bottles. Was just pointing out that Just Water bottles are made from just over 50% paper.

Not a paper bottle. Paper coated plastic is a pointless creation

Still saves on non renewable sources and is better for reusing than normal plastic bottles because less harmful chemicals in the plastic.
