We make packaging disappear

Skipping Rocks Lab are pioneering the use of natural materials such as alginate, an extract from brown seaweed, to create packaging solutions with low environmental impact.  Their first product, the “Ooho”, is a 100% naturally biodegradable membrane that can be used for a range of “on-the-go” liquids, including water, condiments, and juices.  Skipping Rocks Labs have also developed a machine for on-site manufacture of the Ooho to create an on-demand packaging.  They want to replace that on-the-go consumption experience where we buy a plastic water bottle, drink three quarters and then discard.
