With a new innovation by University of Sussex student, Lucy Hughes, our plastic litter problem could be a thing of the past!

From Phys.org:

“A University of Sussex student has taken inspiration from the seas to find a solution to the man-made plastic pollution contaminating the world’s oceans.

Product design student Lucy Hughes has invented a bioplastic created from fish skin and scales and  which could have a huge impact on limiting the amount of non-biodegradable   created in the world.

The fully biodegradable and compostable material, called Marinatex, has been designed as an environmentally-responsible replacement for the plastic film currently used in a whole host of packaging including sandwich boxes.

It can biodegrade in a soil environment in less than a month and can be disposed of through ordinary food waste collections.”
