The Effect of Differing Weather Patterns on the Durability of Biodegradable Products

Environmental Studies

My project focuses on how weather (rain specifically) affects biodegradable plastic. I wanted to find out how a natural occurrence such as rain could affect bioplastic, especially with the differing weather patterns in Tucson, Az. I concluded that rain/water does in fact affect the durability of biodegradable plastic. My project is important because I went into it with the goal of finding out how we can use biodegradable plastic to our advantage, in terms of plastic pollution which is a major environmental issue.
