Design students from the Imperial College London have helped created a product that is going up against plastic bottles. Their ‘edible water bubble’ is a unique, safe and environmentally friendly way to consume water, and is called ‘Ooho‘.
Ooho is a small clear ball and filled with fresh water with an edible exterior. Though it is still early days for this product – and issues such as their delicacy are still being adapted and improved – it has huge potential to significantly reduce the issue of plastic waste in a quirky and effective way.
Skipping Rocks Lab aims is to create a waste-free alternatives to plastic bottles and their product Ooho is made from 100% Plants & Seaweed and biodegradable in 4-6 weeks. It is edible, can be flavoured and coloured, whilst it remains much cheaper than producing plastic bottles.
In the UK, 16 million plastic bottles that are dumped each year; this shows us how huge the issue really is and how important it is for people to be looking at alternate methods to decrease our dependence on plastic bottles.
Could this be the start of a new future for water consumption and plastic?
