Bottles out of algae! Yes, it does exist. Ari Jónsson, a product design student from Iceland, developed an environmentally friendly bottle without plastic. He combined red algae powder with water to create a biodegradable bottle. When agar powder is added to water and cooled, it forms a jelly-like material. If the bottle is filled with water it stays in form, but when the bottle is empty it will begin to decompose. The process takes a lot less time than plastic. Mr. Jónsson himself even suggested that if the user likes the taste of the algae, they can eat the bottle after they have finished drinking. This biodegradable bottle could be a part of the solution for the problem of dirty oceans. For now, this is just a concept, with no plans to become commercially available. Let us hope that it is arriving on sale very soon.
