Elite introduces a fully biodegradable water bottle that can decompose within a year when left in the compost pit or dump. The Nature Bottle is an earth-friendly accessory for the green cyclist. This is due to the bottle’s composition, which is food-grade polyethylene and thermoplastic rubber.
The materials are all recyclable. Should you dispose of the bottle accidentally, the microorganisms present in its surroundings will attack the bottle’s polymer chain and in the process, it will give off water and carbon dioxide.
In normal use, the bottle is functional as it is environmental-friendly. Cervelo team riders used the Nature Bottle at the Giro d’Itala 2010. It is BPA (Bisphenol A) free and comes in 500ml and 750ml sizes. For the 750ml Elite Nature Bottle Super Corsa, it costs only $8.97.
