How it works
Microorganisms love carbon ... in small bits! The naturally occurring microorganisms that live in landfills love carbon ... and landfills have a lot of it. There is a lot of carbon in plastic but they are in super long chains called polymers. Microorganisms find these long chain polymers hard to eat, until now!
Life span of plastic
From manufacturing to consumer to the landfill - this is what happens to all of the worlds plastic.
