Choose and Reuse Compostable Plastics
April 22, 2021
As part of Virtual Kids Zone Activities with CCEW and Earth Day 2021, Greg Tucker will feature sustainable invention and green chemistry based activities.
Fishing bait bags are useful in solving the problem of getting fishing bait to the river bottom where carp and other bottom-dwelling fish live, but typical nylon bait bags are harmful to the environment. Explore the different properties and uses of plastics with a biodegradable, dissolvable alternative to nylon bags and see how chemistry can solve this environmental problem.
