Dissolvable rice starch drinking vessel
The “Calibrated Water” project developed a drinking vessel based on natural materials. If liquid is added to the drinking vessel, it can be used for up to two days before it biodegrades on its own. The more layers of rice starch or rice paper that surround the vessel, the longer it will take to dissolve. With this natural, biodegradable and plastic-free container option, pollution is no longer an issue.
