Ooho Edible Water Bottle

Disposable plastic water bottles are an increasingly worrying source of trash adding up in our landfills, and one that’s soon to be largely unnecessary not only because of our clean, running water supply but also the invention of the Ooho Edible Water Bottle. Call it a bubble or a bottle; regardless, Ooho features a shell made not of plastic but of a biodegradable film composed of seaweed and plant extracts. You can either peel off the membrane and pour the water in your mouth or eat the sphere whole. It’ll likely take some getting used to but these membranes cost less than equivalent amounts of plastic and are obviously far less taxing on the environment. Better yet, they can also hold a variety of beverage types including soft drinks, juice, and booze.
