Sounds fishy?? Well the clever people at Ooho have taken this concept to production. With most of the world’s oxygen coming from seaweed and other algae, it’s no wonder that some people are turning to the material to be used for other purposes.
One of the co-founders of Ooho is Mr Gonzalez, before Ooho he invented a suitcase called Hop that can be controlled through an app to follow its owner. He’s also worked as a comedian on the side, winning a gold medal at the 2009 Improvisation World Championships in Chile and some of his creations have been exhibited at the Tate Modern art gallery in London.
Dubbed “The edible Water Bottle” the flexible plastic packaging material made 100% from seaweed and plants is designed specifically for consumable liquids like water. The product is designed to be eaten either during or after its use. However, if it isn’t, the company claims the material will take on average six weeks to degrade.
Ooho has had a rise to prominence since it started to be developed, with the product starting to be used by various brands over the past 3 years.
The edible water bottle has been used in several major sporting events, but will it make it to our high street shops or local sports centres?
