Everyone has heard of Notpla’s Ooho edible sachets by now. Squishy balls made from seaweed that are filled with water and can be consumed in one go. They took the London Marathon by storm in 2019, but what has happened since?
Much to our delight Notpla is using its seaweed material - now called Notpla - in far more practical ways. From a flexible plastic film replacement, to a cardboard box coating for Just Eat, the company’s patented seaweed substance can help limit the impact of even our most disposable items. Scalability is still a question, but with one of the largest takeaway platforms in the world under its belt, we are adamant that this is only the beginning for Notpla’s compostable, adaptable and truly plastic-free membrane.
