Make your own bio plastic

Short thesis

In this workshop we are going to talk about how to replace plastic bags and daily life packaging with biodegradable materials and learn how to make bio plastics.


A polythene bag takes about 450 years to disintegrate in nature. The bio plastic that we are going to make in this workshop is biodegradable and it takes only about one week to dissolve completely in the water.

The workshop covers:

1. How to make bio plastic.

2. Experiment and learn the properties of this material.

3. Applications of it.

4. The participants will walk away with their kit which will consist of a mould to make it in and bio plastic.
