Water you can eat
We need beta testers...
"Drunk your water? Now eat the bottle it came in."
"This edible water blob could replace plastic water bottles."
"Don't recycle water bottles, eat them instead."
by Skipping Rocks Lab
Ooho! is a new kind of packaging made from seaweed that proposes an alternative to plastic bottles. Our spherical water container is easy and cheap to make, strong, hygienic, biodegradable, and can even be eaten.
The consumption of non-renewable resources for single use bottles and the amount of waste generated is profoundly unsustainable. The aim of Ooho is to provide the convenience of plastic bottles while limiting the environmental impact.
Ooho! is the first project of Skipping Rocks Lab, a London-based startup cofounded by Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez, Guillaume Couche and Pierre Paslier.
Skipping Rocks Lab is part of the Climate KIC start-up acceleration program founded by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT). Skipping Rocks Lab was recently awarded the World Technology Award (environment) held in association with Fortune and TIME.
