These Edible Water Pods Could Eliminate Plastic Bottle Waste

plastic-bottle-waste

According to statistics, Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles during 2017. That doesn’t even account for worldwide plastic bottle use. That number requires 17 million barrels of oil and the sad part is that less than a quarter gets recycled. A lot of people grab plastic bottles and take them to go. Rather than carrying an empty bottle around when they are finished, the average Americans just throws it away or discards it somewhere. What if water came in an edible container?

 

A London-based startup has been working on a way to help eliminate plastic bottle waste. Skipping Rocks Lab is a sustainable packaging company that uses plant extracts and seaweed to create eco-friendly packaging. The end goal is to inhibit one billion plastic bottles from reaching the ocean each year, and to stop 300 million kilograms of CO2 emissions. The company recently developed Ooho, an on-the-go water pod, with the hopes of decreasing plastic waste. Not only is the edible packaging great for water and cheaper than plastic, but it can also be used for certain cosmetics, juices, and other liquids.

 

The reality is that these water pods probably won’t replace commercial water bottles anytime soon, but it is a step in a greener direction. While the company is still in the beginning stages, you can take other measures to help reduce plastic bottle waste. Carry around a reusable, stainless steel bottle! Not only are these readily available, but most of them are also insulated, which means that your water can remain cold or your tea can remain hot for hours and hours.

 

You could purchase a Berkey filter to avoid purchasing plastic bottles for consumption at home. These filters help to get rid of most toxins in water that commercial filters cannot. If you still buy plastic bottles, make sure that you are buying bottles made from recycled materials. And don’t forget to recycle when you are done using it!

    Q: Is sea salt and warm water a good natural laxative? If so how often do you recommend the use of sea salt for elimination? I was reading The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs and it gives this recommendation, along with drinking lemon water mixed with organic syrup and cayenne pepper. Is it safe to give myself an enema 2xs per day using a hot water bottle filled with fresh squeezed organic lemon and distilled water? Asking this because Bzod had me to listen to 88.3 today here in Cincinnati and the guy (Mike) was telling how he does this regularly and has great results.

    A:

    Yes, sea salt in water is a mild laxative!

    You can do it as often as you FEEL the need to drink or take it. 

    You can also consume the Master Cleanse (cayenne, maple syrup, lemon juice) if you choose. You can drink this as much as you like depending on how you feel.

    And yes, you can perform enemas 2X a day! Enemas are very helpful for health!

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!

    A:

    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: I purchase a bottle of your JACKRABBIT FORMULA, and the results were not what you claim. This is after following the instructions, I told an advisor that I had high blood pressure, plus I'm a diabetic, so the medication that I'm taking off set the Jackrabbit, cause there was no results whatsoever.

    A:

    It wasn't the JACKRABBIT FORMULA, Sir! It was your state of health, medication, diet, etc. Herbs are programmed to work so if you get no results, CHECK your health, diet, and lifestyle. You need to detox and find an alternative to that harmful and toxic drugs and medications! You sound like you have a serious circulation problem and diabetes greatly impairs circulation. It's deeper than Jackrabbit formular not working. Something in your body is not working, like your circulation. Time to address the real problem, Beloved!

    Q: I've been a vegan for 2 years now. I've done the FBD 3 times in these two years, but my urine is still yellow. The only time it is clear is immediately after I drink water (reverse osmosis water). If I miss a day of drinking water, my urine goes back to being dark yellow. Does this mean that my body is still very toxic? Also, is it normal to release urine 5 to 15 minutes after drinking liquids? I would think that water would need to stay in the body for awhile for proper hydration and cleansing.

    A:

    From what you wrote I would suggest you start drinking alkaline water (purchase an alkaline water machine, you can find various brands in our e-book "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual"). If you are urinating within 10-15 minutes of drinking water you are not absorbing the water, and thus you require micro-clustered water which an alkaline (and ionizing) water machine does. I also highly recommend consumption of our Kidneys-Bladder formula (3 capsules per day).

    Q: Hi Dherbs.com, how are you? About two years ago my grandmother purchased an ozone machine and I am wondering if you could answer a question I have about it: How long does the water remain "ozonated" after turning the machine off? Also, what is the most powerful way to reap it's benefits: drinking "ozonated" pure water, taking a bath in it, soaking your feet, directly into your ears, etc. Water remains ozonated for about 10-15 minutes and dissolves instantly once machine is off.

    Best ways to consume ozone is drinking it in water and bathing in it. All ways help though! I do them all!
