Decomposing plastic bags – family challenge

Here’s a challenge for all schools and families in web land.

Young scientists of America and the world, see how many plastic bags we can collect and recycle for food for microbes.

Or if you are not interested in the science experiment lets collect plastic bags and send them to a green recycler.

Who will be able to quit using plastic bags all together?

A young scientist in Canada devised a way to help speed the recycling of plastic bags.

He mixed ground up plastic with salt, yeast, water and dirt. Then he cultured the mix to increase the concentration of the soil microbes and yeast cells,

After three months the microbes had eaten 43% of the plastic. Maybe you can do better?
