Award-winning design and innovation consultants at Morrama have developed a concept for Covid tests that are both recyclable and biodegradable.
Last November, ocean-dwelling plastic waste deriving from the pandemic was estimated at being over 26,000 tonnes. That’s more than the weight of 2,000 double decker buses.
No one is happy about this, but the immediate global need for items like single-use masks, rapid flow tests, and other essential medical supplies unfortunately left us with no other choice.
Those making an effort to become more sustainable in their day-to-day lives will have no doubt recoiled at the plastic packaging encompassed in a single packet of at home lateral flow tests.
But there could be a better option on the horizon. A reputable, UK-based design and innovation consultancy firm called Morrama has been working on producing completely recyclable and biodegradable test kits.
