The Edible Plastic Soup Event
Our meeting areas are named after green entrepreneurs for whom sustainability is at the core of their ventures. One of our creative meeting areas is named after Kevin Kumala, renowned for creating a bag from cassava starch that is 100% biodegradable and even edible. So when we heard of the Expo&Tasting – The Edible Plastic Soup, we contacted the curator India Rose Klap. We heard great insights about the back story and we want to encourage you to visit the expo and be inspired.
It’s best to just read the words of India Rose Klap, the creator of this project
“About 8 million metric tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean each year, if this doesn’t stop there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050. To address this problem, I created a recipe for a futuristic bouillabaisse; the edible plastic soup. The recipe has been printed upon a bio-plastic bag. The bag is made from cassava, it is 100% biodegradable and dissolves in warm water. The bag can be used as a binder and garnish for the soup.”
