Plastic that breaks down in weeks rather than centuries sounds fantastic. As concerns over plastic waste mount, the biodegradable plastics industry is growing rapidly coming up with all sorts of alternatives. However, it’s not as simple as simply throwing these new plastics in your backyard and letting nature take its course.
By now, no one denies that humanity has a plastic problem on our hands. At FP International, we think about this issue often, keeping innovation and sustainability at the core of what we do. While plastic as a material is too useful and efficient compared to other barrier materials to just get rid of it, it is of the utmost importance to encourage innovation by either finding a worthy replacement, change it in a way that makes it safer, or modify how we use it. Biodegradable plastic is one such innovation that is quickly picking up steam.
