Today I saw an article about a plastic eating bacteria today and found it quite interesting. Although it doesn’t solve the plastic problem because of the toxic processes plastic requires to be produced, I think it’s a step in the right direction. Has anyone else heard of this? What are your thoughts? Here’s a link to one of the many articles:
