It has to be said that the rise of the food delivery industry has made countless otaku and otaku and us “five to nine” office workers, but with the increasing rise of food delivery, the problem of plastic waste has become more and more serious. It is reported that the amount of plastic waste produced by mankind currently exceeds 8 billion tons! By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean…
Not long ago, two female college students invented an environmentally friendly product-edible straws, hoping to replace traditional plastic products with this new straw.
It is the world’s first edible, compostable, and marine-degradable disposable straw. The color of the straw is entirely taken from plants, vegetables and fruits, and is made by LOLIWARE using seaweed-based material technology. It is 100% plastic-free and non-GMO !
The straw can provide body energy after being eaten, it can be used as plant food after composting, and it can also become biofuel after anaerobic digestion. It is no different from ordinary glasses and straws in appearance, but it can do both. It is environmentally friendly and can satisfy the desire for food at the same time, and it is said that the taste is quite good.
When they design the cups, in addition to being edible from an environmental perspective, they also take the smell, taste, and shape into consideration. In order to increase the edibility of the cup, they also specially invited food scientists to work hard to improve the taste of the cup, and finally processed into a variety of flavors such as cherry, matcha, and citrus.
