We hear the word ‘plastic’ more frequently than any other in our daily lives. The sheer convenience and ease combined with the affordability of plastics have made them ubiquitous. This was probably why we continued to use them in different ways even when we started seeing their ill effects on the environment and biodiversity, convinced that the environment will adapt to our way of living.
Even while there had previously been restrictions on the use of plastic, it wasn’t until lately that we realised how much of a problem plastic pollution and its effects still are. This not only offered us a chance to consider how we interact with the environment but also inspired us to consider eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives to plastics. Bioplastic is one such alternative that is made of biodegradable materials that come from renewable sources.
