David commented on Seaweed food containers

Not all food containers are edible but many of them are plastic and can be re-used. We should collect them and send them to local centers for re-cycling. One recent company has established the means to do this with all household waste being processes and converted and without spoiling the atmosphere by burning. Plastic (heat softenable) pellets result, which can be molded into many useful items.

The model and its photographs are also described in another working paper: SSRN 2600103 "A Mechanical Model for Teaching Macroeconomics" , but the theory about it is mentioned above in SSRN 2865571.

Can this idea be taken further? Because seaweed is an edible vegetable, could not these properties be included in the demand for the food being contained. In other words, the food product being provided and used should be supplemented by instructions about how to cook or otherwise prepare as food THE CONTAINER ITSELF!
