A new way to consume water

Plastic bottles represent a significant challenge for the environment, to begin with, they take between 100 and 500 years to degrade, they are one of the most common polluting containers in our seas and they have a direct effect on forest fires, for not Talk about its high price. Fortunately, it seems that the market has seen how being ecologically responsible can be profitable at the same time. The first step has been taken by three industrial design students (two French and one Spanish) who have created the first container of edible water.

This container is formed after immersing a block of ice in calcium chloride, which creates a kind of gelatinous mass around the block of ice to later reinforce it with an extract made from algae.

The process, despite seeming totally innovative, was used for the first time in 1946 and takes the name of “spherification”.
