London Marathon hands out edible water capsules to reduce plastic bottle waste

To reduce plastic waste, thousands of edible water bottles were distributed today at the London Marathon.
The consequence of the marathon is usually a sea of plastic waste, as thirsty runners try to keep moisture in the water by drinking bottles.
At 2019 London Marathon, the organizers arranged for participants to hand over edible pods made of seaweed extracts to them while dealing with the difficult 26 th race. 2-mile route.

Startups based on the startup Skipping lab are made using thin natural seaweed film. The Ooho!
The capsule can be bitten, the liquid inside can be released, and the lid can also be swallowed.
However, if runners do not want to eat the shell, they can throw it on the floor because the pods are designed to be biodegradable within six weeks, compared to the 450 required for plastic bottle decomposition.
\"The marathon is a milestone. . .
We hope we will prove that it can be used on a large scale in the future, \"Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez, one of the founders of the startup, told CNN.
This year\'s marathon is not entirely plastic.
However, there are free water bottles in the shops along the way.
As part of the initiative to reduce unnecessary plastic waste, the organizer guarantees that all water bottles distributed are at least partially made of recycled plastic and that all discarded bottles will be collected and recycled.
In addition to efforts to reduce the number of bottles in use, organizers are also testing ways to recycle bottles more effectively.
Using the \"closed cycle\" system, plastic bottles will be returned directly to the reprocessing plant from Angela Greenwich, south China, Canary Wharf, and they will add new bottles.
