Can Honolulu Marathon Offer Seaweed-Based Drink Capsules to Eliminate Plastic Waste in Hawaii?

There is no single-use plastic for Virgin Money London Marathon (source).  They offer the runners biodegradable seaweed-based drink capsules produced by Ooho (alternative to plastic). As a marathon runner, I hate to see much plastic waste in Hawaii. Can the Honolulu Marathon learn from London Maraton? I think they can.

Ooho is a water sachet that you can eat. It’s made from Notpla, our material combining seaweed and plants. Ooho biodegrades in 4-6 weeks, making it ideal for on the go consumption. No micro-plastics, no waste for centuries. Unlike PLA, it is home compostable and doesn’t contaminate PET recycling.

Here is what we can do to eliminate more plastic waste in Hawaii by using Ooho product:

Oohos are a fun way to drink juices, waters or even alcohol cocktails in festivals and events without using plastic. 

They can encapsulate a wide range of sauces, salad dressings, and condiments. Developed for the delivery industry in mind, our sachets made from Notpla range from 10-60mL and can be composted with the rest of your food waste.
