“Thousands of seaweed pods will replace single-use plastics at the London Marathon”

“Typically, the aftermath of a marathon is a sea of plastic waste. But in an effort to make the event more sustainable, the London Marathon will replace thousands of plastic water bottles with edible seaweed pouches this year. More than 40,000 people plan to run the marathon on Sunday. And they’re in for a bit of a different experience when they reach Mile 23 ā€” Ooho seaweed capsules instead of plastic bottles or cups. The capsules can be filled with a variety of liquids, but the ones provided at the marathon will be filled with Lucozade Sport, an electrolyte drink. ”
