The capsule is made of brown seaweed, which the inventor says is one of the most renewable resources in nature.

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.
