An alternative bioplastic made out of seaweed that is just as convenient, durable and cost-effective as normal plastic. This bioplastic is not only biodegradable and water-soluble but supports cleaning the environment. With no change in habits, people will be supporting the health of the earth.
Given that our solution is an alternative bioplastic made out of seaweed that is biodegradable, water-soluble, we needed to test out what materials would best create a convenient, durable and cost-effective product just as normal plastic. Bioplastic is primarily constructed of a biopolymer and a plasticizer, and through our testing, we have explored a variety of options to land on our version of bioplastic.
