What are bioplastics?

Plastic is the third most commonly used petroleum derivative in the world each year 200 million tons of plastic are consumed on the planet It comes from a non-renewable source (petroleum) it is contaminating and non-biodegradable (it can take more than 1000 years to decompose)
