Plastic You Can Drink
A Balinese surfer and  entrepreneur, Kevin Kumala, understands the threats that plastic pollution brings to his home. Kumala turned to his biology degree and bioplastics for a solution to plastic pollution. Bioplastics led Kumala and a friend to Cassava. Cassava is a cheap and common root vegetable found across Indonesia. Together they created a bioplastic consisting of cassava starch, vegetable oil, and organic resins. The bioplastic is biodegradable and compostable, can break down over a period of months on land or at sea, or instantly in hot water. To prove that the bioplastic leaves no trace of toxic residue, Kumala dissolves it and drinks it. For more about Kumala and his company, Avanti, read the  Full Article.
