FOAM IS WHERE THE HEART IS

MELBOURNE innovator Josh Howard has come up with a bubbly way to keep clean and help the environmen­t.

The former New Yorkbased tech executive has created Single Use Ain’t Sexy, a range of dissolvabl­e hand soap tablets and reusable dispensers.

The non-toxic tablets foam up when they are mixed with water and pumped through the bottle.

“Every time someone purchases just one of the reusable bottles, they save up to 25 single-use plastic bottles from going into landfill every year,” Howard said.

“I’ve spent my entire life savings on eradicatin­g singleuse plastics.

“There is an urgent human health crisis right now, but there is still an ongoing environmen­tal one too. We are working tirelessly to address both these issues.”

The start-up, which launches online this week is donating 5 per cent of the profits to frontline medical workers tackling coronaviru­s.

Single Use Ain’t Sexy will soon release a full range of eco-friendly products.
