    • For something to biodegrade it needs moisture and even sunlight to speed up the process. It would last longer on a shelf than a month. Plus a refrigerator would slow they process, and I’m not eating month old leftovers

    • There are way too many people that seem to not know what biodegradable means. Saying it will biodegrade in a week doesn't mean the plastic will just dissolve in a week. You should have learned this in elementary school.

    • Plastic is a byproduct of refining oil. We don’t go out of our way to produce it. If you don’t use plastic products, the plastic is still going to be made, but it’ll just sit there and never be sold and probably drive gas prices higher to compensate for lost profits.

    • Biodegrading is highly dependent upon moisture level and temperature. So, wrapping items that are wet, like meat and produce, would begin breaking down the “plastic” while the food is in the packaging, thereby contaminating the food, not preserving it.

    • None of you morons understand what biodegradable means. It has to be in contact with dirt for the process to take place. Cardboard biodegrades in 3 months, but you don't see your boxes disappearing in your attic, do you?

    • I work in polymer chemistry and there’s thousands of plastics like this. They’re expensive and either degrade too fast, too slow, or using mild acid which is bad because our water can become acidic in bottles and it melts the bottles.
