Our aim is to develop an Edible Water Bottle. This is a business idea to generate revenue for our start-up company and also contribute a bit for the environment and its green future. It is estimated that in US alone every year, 17million barrels of oil is used up to make 50 billion plastic bottle cans per year. And out of this only 23% is recycled resulting in a loss of over $1 million. On the flipside it can add value to people’s life, athletes, trekkers, hikers, mountain climbers, sailors, air passengers, astronauts can carry this Edible Water bottle with them, as it quenches their thirst and gives them nutrition at same time, also minimizing their back pack or storage sizes. None the less, it’s a challenge for us to take up this project as it’s one of a kind and never been done before!
