When creating the design of the Hi-Cone Six Pack Eco-Belt, we had three key goals in mind: That it’s easier to recycle than the original Hi-Cone product, that it does not present a potential hazard to any sea life that may consume it if it does end up in the ocean, and that it be as neutral as the original Hi-Cone product for branding. After a few hours of experimenting with various methods of securing all six bottles, we eventually came to the idea of having one long strap that wraps around all six bottles. Compared to other methods such as perforated sections and experiments with suction cups, Eco-Belt proved to be the most secure under the weight of all six bottles.
