The idea aims to close the plastics loop by:
 collection and removal of plastic waste from the system
 prevent the creation of plastic waste by designing bio-degradable alternatives to plastic packaging
Collection and removal of plastic waste is largely a question of educating and motivating people. We achieved 100% success in this and ensured zero garbage in our community of about 300 families. This was possible due to large voluntary participation of community members in the initiatives as well as clear guidelines on waste disposal techniques. Currently all the waste generated is either composted or recycled.
The low thermal conductivity of plastic should make it suitable for insulation requirements. By incorporating such waste into durable structures, we can reduce energy requirements for heating while taking plastic waste out of the system. Admittedly this only kicks the can further down the road, however it avoids the negative environmental and economic impacts of incineration or landfills.
Bioplastics are probably the only option currently available that can both meet current demands for packaging and also prevent environmental disasters from playing out. There are multiple options for bioplastics and we would like to undertake commercial development of such bio-degradable material. Options we are considering use cornstarch, vinegar, gelatin etc. which are 100% environment friendly.
