I need help with a project that I decided to do by making an alternative plastic that can biodegrade quickly but still be just as strong and durable

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Environmentally friendly plastics could be as follows

  • Bio-plastics made from natural materials such as corn starch
  • Biodegradable plastics made from traditional petrochemicals. These are engineered to break down more quickly.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
