We have been playing around with possible bottle styles, also should they be plastic or glass. The mock-up gives an example of the shape we are moving towards along with a possible sip cap or seal cap.
Glass or Plastic
Some of the collection will be in glass and some plastic. The glass beverage collection are mixtures when combined to be bottled and warehoused contain a level of acids which my cause changes if stored for periods of time in plastic.( This info was a recommendation )
Some of you close to me on the Shotts journey have been surprised as I have, on the power of the need to make money can affect what an industry will sell in the marketplace.
Plans are changing even as this is written. The Shotts Beverage Corp will start with a small workshop,bottling, packaging, and retail location in Detroit. We have learned so much about what we put into our bodies, and also understand why we get sick, without realizing that we are slowly poisoning ourselves. Financing this project is an uphill battle, but it is a battle that must be, because if we keep consuming what the marketplace keeps peddling, it will be impossible for us to know what is good for us.
We are still pushing ahead, and at times it seems as if we are not getting any closer, but we are. While talking with member of the beverage industry you discover it is not much different from any other industry or business, most believe they don’t have to change or innovate until the change starts affecting their sales.
We have come to agreement with some companies and are working towards a plan of bottling our own product as part of a youth training and employment project.
The next update will offer the youth project plan and some product information.
