Plastic from plants

A new biodegradable plastic has been developed from an unlikely source - wheat.

The wheat starch plastic has similar properties to conventional plastic, but it will break down in the compost heap in 40 to 50 days.

As well as being made from a low cost, renewable resource, another advantage of the plastic is that it won't contaminate any food it holds.
