One keeps hearing about various efforts wrt bioplastics - but do they truly biodegrade with no/little adverse effects on the soil? How does one even determine this for any new material being created?
Would love to hear from those with experience with this.
Yes, at a personal level, cloth bags, refilling are options. But given the current supply chains and industry, it is unlikely we will make that huge a switch at scale in a hurry, and the quest for substitutes will continue for a bit.
