Lucozade Sport has teamed up with materials engineering start-up Skipping Rocks Lab to trial plastic-free sports drinks. The revolutionary Oohos are made entirely from seaweed extract. Not only are they 100% edible and compostable, they will also naturally biodegrade in four to six weeks.
Lucozade Sport Oohos are a completely new and exciting way to reduce plastic use in the long-term at mass-participation sporting events.
Lucozade Sport filled Ohoos have been sampled at selected races and sporting events since September 2018, which is a fantastic step forward in the world of plastic-free hydration.
Gently (they’re delicate!) take an Ooho from a volunteer at the Ooho stand (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 kerb 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.
