Plantics developed biodegradable plastic. This type of plastic is sustainable and produced without any pollutants. 

Plantics’ mission is to develop and market its proprietary biopolymer. Plantics offers biodegradable alternatives for currently existing agricultural plastic products, thereby saving time, labor, and waste-management costs for customers in addition to making their products and operations more sustainable – all without the need to pay a “green premium”.
