What is bioplastic?



  1. 0 Votes

    Bioplastics are plant-based alternatives to the traditional petroleum-based plastics. They produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions and are filled with BPA (chemical that affect hormones). Instead of spending hundreds or thousands of years sitting in a landfill, bioplastics can break down and naturally degrade. Unfortunately, there are still some set-backs that make biodegradable plastic too good to be true. It is more expensive to produce than petroleum-based plastic, it needs to be in a compost instead of airless in a landfill, and many recycling plants do not have a process in place to separate them from regular plastic. This means it all gets thrown away.
