If you do a Google search for the “dangers of plastic water bottles”, the results may alarm you. Long story short, people in the United States alone use an estimated 35 billion plastic bottles per year. Since it takes hundreds of years for these bottles to decompose, we have a serious environmental issue to deal with… Until now.
Thanks to the brilliant scientists at Skipping Rocks Lab, a new type of “packaging” has been created to solve this difficult problem. On the Skipping Rocks website, it says that “The consumption of non-renewable resources for single-use bottles and the amount of waste generated is profoundly unsustainable. The aim of Ooho is to provide the convenience of plastic bottles while limiting the environmental impact.”

“Our packaging is cheaper than plastic and can encapsulate any beverage including water, soft drinks, spirits, and even cosmetics.”
The creator of the Ooho, Skipping Rocks Lab, is on a “mission to make packaging waste disappear.”
