E'Compact is an economical, collapsible, lightweight bottle from Filpac (Chestnut Hill, MA). It consists of a smooth PE bottle with lugs on the side that fit into slots on a paperboard sleeve.
This design gives the bottle full rigidity with half the weight of a conventional plastic bottle. After use the bottle can be separated from the paperboard for separate recycling. The bottle can be squeezed flat and rolls into 1/5 of its original volume.
