Biodegradable plastic. On average, Americans collectively use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour, but few of these bottles are recycled or reused. Many of the plastic bottles that we use today are not biodegradable. Students in this lesson plan will bury newly made utensils and other utensils to compare the degradability of each product.
