Lucozade Sport has teamed up with Notpla, a materials engineering start-up to trial plastic-free sports drinks. The revolutionary Ooho seaweed pods filled with Lucozade Sport Orange are 100% edible and compostable, they will also naturally biodegrade in four to six weeks.
In 2019 Lucozade Sport carried out the largest ever trial as over 30,000 were handed out to runners of the London Marathon. They are a completely new and exciting way to reduce plastic use in the long-term at mass-participation sporting events.
Gently (they’re delicate!) take a one from a volunteer at the Lucozade Sport drink station (you’ll be told where this is before the race begins)
Pop it in your mouth against your cheek
Bite! The experience is similar to eating a cherry tomato.
While completely edible, the membrane can be thrown to the ground if you don’t want to eat it. Don’t worry though, when you throw it away it degrades in less than six weeks just like fruit peel.
