Plastic being an artificial component is unable to adapt to our natural environment because of its non-biodegradable characteristic. A simple remedy using our home ingredients (acetic acid, glycerine, corn starch) can help to produce bio plastic. The idea is based on using this simple technique to manufacture starch based bio plastic on large scale. This can prove to aid in replacing the plastic sachets that are contributing to numerous health and environmental hazards.
In Pakistan this can be easily adopted as corn has the 3rd largest production among cereals, this production can be multiplied, the starch extracted and then the bio plastic made.
However for this idea to be executed, collaboration with research institutes will be required to test for the feasibility of corn based bio plastic as sachets. On receiving positive feedback, this packing material will be launched in market and product manufacturers would be required to employ this bio plastic for packaging of materials sold in sachets.
