Paper Funnel / Recyclable package

Paper Funnel

After the water in disposable bottles is drunk, most of the frugal people would like to save these bottles for keeping some stuff like granulated sugar, dry grapes, Chinese wolfberry, nuts etc. However, the narrow bottleneck makes it spill out easily. In this design the packaging paper can be uncovered simply by following the sign, and a funnel is made in seconds to help filling in dry grapes. Since the paper funnel can be used for several times, the water bottle is now more environmental friendly.
