Discover the 5 Myths Sabotaging Your Hiring Strategy

Industry Overview

With increasing attention being paid to environmental-consciousness, the market for “green” products is growing rapidly. From this movement has sprung biodegradable plastics, an eco-friendlier alternative to traditional plastics, with far less impact on the environment. Whether bioplastics made from organic products rather than petroleum, or traditional plastics formulated with additives that promote degradation, when properly disposed of, these products have drastically shorter “lifespans” after being discarded.

The battle has not yet concluded, though. The search is on for additional solutions that can be made from renewable raw materials, as well as those which will enable the breakdown of traditional plastics. Because the conditions often must be just-right for the desired biodegradation to occur, additional infrastructure is also needed to make biodegradable plastics a long-term solution to cluttered landfills.
