What is the Edible Water Bottle?
Edible Water Bottle - Takeaway Packaging
Have you heard of the edible water bottle?

The ‘Edible Water Bottle’ is a blob-like bottle, made from Sodium Alginate Gel. Skipping Rocks Lab created them in an attempt to produce a more environmentally friendly alternative to single use plastic bottles. They have named their creation Ooho.

“The aim of Ooho is to provide the convenience of plastic bottles while limiting the environmental impact.”

Ooho Features
  • It is 100% made of Plants & Seaweed
  • Biodegradable in 4-6 weeks, just like a piece of fruit
  • Edible can be flavoured and coloured
  • Fresh (shelf life of a few days)5x less CO₂, 9x less Energy vs PET
  • Cheaper than plastic

This product has risen to popularity over the last few months and has already appeared at many events across the world, including London, San Francisco and Boston.

Alternatives to Single Use Plastic Bottles
There are many other alternatives to single use plastic bottles, view some popular choices below!

Reusable plastic bottles are an option, but if you are striving for an eco-friendly future (like us!), we’d avoid plastic all together, including reusable plastic items.

Glass is another viable alternative to single use plastic bottles. Glass can be recycled, and reused time and time again. Of course, glass is heavy and likely to break if dropped.

Metal water bottles are one of the most practical options you’ll find in your searches. They are both reusable and recyclable. You can find metal water bottles all over, especially in coffee shops such as Starbucks & Pret A Manger.
