We heard many of the students say that they would be telling their parents, and even their school teachers about what our plastic pollution is doing to the environment and how they wanted to help be the solution to the problem.

Oxo Biodegradable (OXO) plastic is polyolefin plastic to which has been added amounts of metal salts. These catalyze the natural degradation process to speed it up so that the OXO plastic will degrade resulting in micro-fragments of plastic and metals which will remain in the environment but will not be seen as a visual contaminant. The degradation process is shortened from hundreds of years to years and/or months for degradation and thereafter biodegradation depends on the micro-organisms in the environment.

What do those “Recycle” numbers on plastic really mean anyway?

We have all been taught by the plastic industry that the symbol means the plastic can be recycled and that it is safe for use in our households. The reality is unfortunately different. Although arguably, all plastics are “Recyclable” the reality is that unless a recycler can find a buyer of the used plastic, it too will end up in our landfill.
