Edible water bottle cuts marathon waste

Small transparent spheres filled with a drink could be the answer the problem of plastic waste, according to their London-based developers. The biodegradable ‘Ooho balls’, which resemble large bubbles, have a jelly-like membrane made of plant and seaweed extracts. This makes them entirely edible, though company, Skipping Rocks Lab, says the membranes decompose after four to six weeks if not consumed.

The Ooho balls were launched last year, quenching the thirst of consumers at special events in San Francisco and London. Now, they’ve partnered with a British sports drink maker to offer an alternative to plastic cups and bottles at marathons.
