Are there any disadvantages to having biodegradable plastics?

    Well, if you wanted them, theoretically, to last for centuries (though I can’t think offhand why you might – time capsule, maybe?), biodegradable plastics wouldn’t work so well. They’re still more expensive to manufacture, I think. Apart from that, and certainly for the environment, it’s all good stuff.

    One disadvantage in the Organic Farming community is that by using them you are not abiding by organic regulation. Counterintuitive, right? Well this is because there are manufacturing secrets in the make-up of the material that cannot be revealed, and therefore cannot be known by those who certify if the material is organic or not!
