New York-based start-up LOLIWARE to reduce single-use plastics with biodegradable seaweed straws


LOLIWARE produces edible seaweed-based straws which can break down rapidly for efficient composting and biodegrade within a few weeks in water. In June 2019, the company will begin shipping its seaweed straws to hospitality chain Marriott and beverage company Pernod Ricard. By the end of 2020, LOLIWARE aims to produce 30 billion seaweed straws at the same production cost as paper straws.

Thanks to Vivid member Nina for spotting that one!
