Biodegradable Plastics May Not Be As Environmentally Friendly Once Thought – USAPosted on April 3, 2015 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News

They are not a rapid biodegradation as we are used to thinking about like a banana skin, but even if it takes 20 years to biodegrade away that is far better than 500 years.
