If You are fed up of these unhealthy sights ...
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF ECO-FRIENDLY PLASTICS – “BIOPLASTICS”
Problem is not with Plastics!
Problem is with management of Plastic Wastes!
Industrial growth, Urbanization, wrong agricultural practices etc. are responsible for pollution and loss of environmental quality. Nature’s built-in mechanisms and self-regulation abilitycannot tackle novel pollutants since Nature is unfamiliar to it. We will have to remain in tune withthe Nature and exploit its balancing capacities to ultimately make our environment comfortable. Making eco-friendly products is a part of this process. Bioplastics is one such reality which can help us to overcome the problem of pollution caused by plastics. Bioplastics can be usedfor manufacture of variety of containers, articles, packaging materials which otherwise are produced using non-degradable plastics. Non-degradable plastics accumulate at the rate of 25million tonnes per year. Plastic in the environment is regarded to be more an aesthetic nuisance than a hazard, since the material is biologically quite inert. Considerable portion of solid municipal wastes is plastic. There is a lot of research going on and development has occurred to develop bioplastics which can economically replace conventional plastics.
