Bioplastics can help reduce plastic pollution

Plastic pollution is a major environmental concern, as it is difficult to dispose of and takes hundreds of years to decompose naturally. Solutions exist to reduce plastic pollution, such as biodegradable plastic and bioplastics made of biomass. Biomass is any kind of biological material, including food waste. This reduces greenhouse gas emissions and can be broken down by bacteria, fungi, and other decomposers in the environment. In this article, 3 methods to create bioplastics are explained in easy to understand language: 1. Extracting chemical components 2. Using bacteria 3. Making biocomposite plastics
