Recipe for a Plastic-Free Ouse Day

Every year lots of plastic bags of flour and water-filled balloons get thrown into the Ouse as the rafters go by. It’s great fun for us, but not so much for the creatures and the river. So Plastic-Free Lewes have found an alternative.

It’s odourless, it’s colourless, it’s made of seaweed, it’s….

Easy Ousey Jelly

Keep our river plastic-free and try this simple recipe for kinder missiles –

For 1 litre of jelly :

  1. Put 15g Agar powder/flakes in saucepan
  2. Add 1 litre of cold water and mix it
  3. Put lid on and boil for a minute or two, mix again
  4. Keep lid on and let it cool for at least 4 hours
  5. Make balls of jelly by scooping with an ice cream scoop & putting them in a bucket.

And wave goodbye to plastic bags of flour, water balloons and other environmental nasties.
