While bioplastics have been advertised as being the savior of the world’s plastic pollution issues, bioplastics too, have some issues of their own. Bioplastics are made, at least partially, of plants. This means that land must be used to grow the plants that are used. They are also frequently made of plants such as corn, which are often grown as a monocrop, which is not as beneficial for the environment as growth with more diversity. Bioplastics also must be disposed of with proper techniques. If proper disposal techniques are not followed, bioplastics have problematic implications for both recycling and landfills. This article will outline the basics of bioplastics and everything you need to know in order to avoid improper disposal.
