Turning anti-single-use-plastic words into action pays off

London’s Harrow Half Marathon became the British capital’s first to offer no single-use plastic bottles to runners. Instead, runners were able to rehydrate themselves with Ooho – water in a biodegradable sachet made from 100% seaweed-based membrane. Runners collected them from volunteers when passing water stations. The material is edible and can be treated just like food.
