Plastics can associate us with different things, and one of them is certainly a garbage. Modern technologies and new materials, in recent decades, have made the plastic ubiquitous in our lives.
Knowing that 50 percent of the total plastic used in the world people use only once has prompted Israeli Ari Jonsson to dedicate himself to solving this problem. Previously, having dealt with the advantages and disadvantages of numerous materials, Ari found a unique way to make a biodegradable water bottle.
For this, he used agar, powdered material derived from algae. Mixed with water, agar becomes gelatinous matter.
First he experimented with different proportions of materials. Then he warmed slowly before he poured it into a mold that had previously been frozen. He turned the mold, immersed in ice water, until the material in it received the shape of the bottle.
Then he left everything in the fridge for a few minutes to tighten.
Its innovative bottle retains its shape for as long as it has water. Once emptied, it begins to dissolve. And the most interesting thing about everything is that then you can eat the bottle.
