How to make edible packaging.

by GiveMeTap July 17, 2014

Can you have your water bottle and eat it too?

Inspired by techniques from molecular gastronomy, three London-based Spanish industrial design students created Ooho, a blob-like water container that they say is easy and cheap to make, strong, hygienic, biodegradable, and edible.

Here is their video showing how to chow down on the blob which costs only 2 cents to make!

As reported by Co.Exist

It is awesome to see innovative solutions to plastic waste being discovered everyday. Edible Packaging is a brilliant move towards a truely sustainable product. However, I do wonder how the Ooho would live in my bag without bursting onto my Kindle!

Maybe this solution is better for home use, replacing plastic bottles in the fridge and for those people who don’t have access to quality tap water.

Sustainable solutions do not necessarily have to mean that bottle packaging has to disappear, but that the bottle doesn’t have to be disposed of to the detriment of our Planet. This is why solid portable solutions such as stainless-steel bottles may fare better on the way to work when placed in the same bag as your other prized possessions!

What do you guys think? Would you prefer to have something edible like Ooho, or a solution that could last you a long time?

Just after speaking with our NGO partner in Ghana about...

by Edwin Broni-Mensah February 19, 2016



Just after speaking with our NGO partner in Ghana about (frustrating) international policies on water and sanitation, and then declaring that I going work to affect things at the policy level, I get an invitation from The White House!!! Going to discuss Africa-America relations, immigration policies and more. Thank you very much God!

I was like “how did they hear/know about little old me who just touched down in USA” and then I was reminded of a quote: “when little dogs keep yapping the big dogs hear”. I’ll keep that mic in my hand and work to continue helping in anyway I can.
