Seaweed pouches replace plastic bottles

Seaweed pouches (attached) will replace thousands of plastic bottles at the London marathon.

The edible pods biodegrade within six weeks if they're not eaten — a far cry from the 450 or more years it takes a plastic bottle to decompose

Need Indian social startups to come with such innovations. more

We should have it soon more  
Govt of the day needs to be strong and bureaucracy needs to be patriotic and Not self-serving, for most of the improvements good for a strong healthy nation to be implemented promptly. Sadli second aspect is lacking. more  
Sir Desikachari Venugopal your reply itself betrays your argument - is it not Govt's failure if innovations don't get recognition or its due? If Govt. is strong & pro-active & bureaucracy thrown out of window innovators wouldn't face this apathy. Modi was voted in just to straighten the rot set-in, but failed. more  
Why can't such innovations take place in India? Education system????? First 5 years of BJP rule has failed in this sector - can this improve in next 5???? more  
Why suddenly bring the Government into the picture? And why the last 5 years government only?

There are plenty of innovations taking place in India. But we never notice until the West adopts it and sells it back to us.For example, bio compostable leaf plates made of areaca nut leaves.

This is due to two centuries of propaganda against everything Indian, by our colonial masters. more  
It is good idea but Technology Transfer is expensive. Needs to be exploited to cater villages in India. more
