Mealworms are an answer to ‘compostable’ plastics
12 November, p16

From Andrew Kadir-Buxton, Hatfield, Hertfordshire, UK

I read your report on problems with compostable plastic. A friend of mine tried to compost such plastic and found it didn’t break down. I suggested adding some mealworms to his compost and the plastic was soon eaten. This is scalable, and perhaps the adult mealworms could be turned into pet food at the end of the process.
