The World Economic Forum Facebook page shared this video of a water bottle that decomposes once you finish drinking from it. Made from algae jelly, the water bottle was invented by Ari Jonsson, a student from Iceland.
The aesthetics have some room for improvement, but this is nevertheless a great idea.
Water’s a major issue for Matt Damon, which was why he created the non-profit company Water.org two years ago. Water.org teamed up with CamelBak recently to launch a limited-edition BPA-free water bottle, which comes in stainless steel and plastic. Ten dollars from the sale of every bottle will go towards supporting Water.org’s efforts to bring clean water to communities in developing countries.
