The objective for this project was to design a personal water container, but with some outside the box thinking, I decided to redesign water itself as well as the container. Pearl Pods come in friendly packaging aimed to entice kids to drink more water and be healthier. The unique form of water will make customers curious and want to try them. For every purchase, $1 will be donated to an aquatic life preservation charity. The pods are made using sodium alginate (seaweed byproduct) and calcium lactate in a process known as spherification. The packaging will be made out of another seaweed byproduct known as agar plastic, making both the pods and clam shell 100% biodegradable.
