• WHAT IS AN GREEN OPTION?
• An ethical way of making choices and preserve the
earth’s natural resources and habitats.
• Firstly, the alternative is that the usage of glass bottles, metallic
tins, bioplastics, paper bottles, bamboo sticks,etc.
• Secondly, the cost for the synthesis of polythene covers in large
amount is comparatively less for synthesising all the above
materials as they are naturally available and also recycled and
used again and again…

5. EXISTING SYSTEM
• All the proposed system related to the green
options for milk packaging is purely based on
how to degrade the plastic that has been used
or how to recycle it.
• Alternatively, they have given suggestions on
using chemical products, that is based on
reducing the cost ( for preservation process)
7. DRAWBACKS OF THE EXISTING SYSTEM
*More number of machine or labour work is
* More expenses are to be spent on the
work they have proposed.
*Time consumption is high.
*Didn’t give any solution on totally reducing
the harmful effects of the plastic covers.
8. PROPOSED SYSTEM
HEMP is an plant which belongs to an botanical class of
It is an already proposed manner where it is processed and
is used for packaging solid products where it is an hard product
but gets dissolved in liquid (like an cardboard texture)
10. PROPOSED SYSTEM
• POLYPROPELENE PLASTICS:
• On comparing the carbon footprint of common plastics, PP
has the lowest, that is, 1.95-3 kg of CO2 per kg, compared to 6
kg of CO2 per kg for polyethylene.
• It does not have any hazardous disease producing agent on
• ROTATIONAL MOULDING:
• consisting of an mold tool, core side and cavity
side. Plastic powder is added and mold in an oven, by
heating, mold is slowly related on two axes and thus
correct thickness is build.
• Ethane and propane is added and treated
with heat in this process to get polymers. (This is
to polypropylene plastic).
13. THE PROCESS
• STEP 1:
• FIRSTLY, WE ARE GOING TO TAKE THE HEMP,
THAT IS PROCESSED (LIKE CLEANING,GRINDING)
14. THE PROCESS
• STEP 2:
• NOW, WE COULD TAKE THE POLYPROPELENE
PLASTIC (SAFEST PLASTIC) INTO ACCOUNT
THAT’S IN MOLTEN FORM
• ======> 55%
15. PROPOSED SYSTEM
• FINALLY, WE ARE ADDING THOSE TWO ITEMS
AND HEATING IN AN TEMPERATURE BETWEEN
• THE FINAL LIQUID IS TO POURED INTO THE
SHAPER (DESIRED BOTTLE SIZE).
• THEY ARE ALLOWED TO COOL DOWN FOR
HALF A DAY.
• Flavoured milk packaging is a growing sector which
can involve many more innovations but is primarily
dominated by aspetic packaging & glass bottle.
• Usage of these natural resources in our daily routine
may help our society in decreasing the rate of
diseases in upcoming days.
• To make our society one step ahead using the
