Fun With Biodegradable Bags

For quite some time I’ve been meaning to buy some compostable plastic bags so I can see how quickly they will breakdown in a composting system. I’ve always been really fascinated with the idea of biodegradable plastic in general, and really happy to learn that the technology has continued to improve (I seem to recall that the earliest bioplastics simply decomposed into a zillion plastic fragments rather actually breaking down completely).

Anyway, yesterday I ordered a box of 50 BioBag (R) doggy poop bags and can’t wait till they arrive – I have lots of ideas for different experiments.

I had fun with my “coffee cup challenge“, but I know this will be a lot more interesting!

Stay tuned! More to come.
