Crowdfunding for edible membrane to replace water bottles

Water-bubbleFrom Skipping Rocks Lab, the alternative to plastic bottles is in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube that has earned nearly double its £400,000 (US$501,000) goal in just days.

Ohoo! sachets are referred to by the team as flexible packets of water; they can be consumed whole or opened to pour out the liquid they contain, be it water, spirits, soda or even cosmetics. The seaweed-based material is cheaper than plastic, says the team.

The material itself and the production technology have been in development for two years, and for the past six months “Oohos” have been trialled at events around the UK, including at London’s Borough Market and Design Museum.
