BioPlastics are plastics that can be made out of common household products.
These are to the environment in that they contain no petroleum unlike usual plastics such as tupperware etc. Also instead of taking about 100 years to fully decompose it only takes about 7.
There are probably other instructables about BioPlastics out there, but I made some for a school project so I decided to make an Instructable
Step 1: Ingredients
-Wax Paper (optional)
You will also need a microwave.
And measuring tools
Step 2: Mixture
For a more rigid plastic, add more corn starch.
For a more flexible/ squishy plastic add more water.
I mixed them in a sandwich bag.
If you want to add in some vegetable or canola oil (I used canola) and it will help keep it together a little bit
for every 2 cups of MIXED water and corn starch I added 1 tablespoon of oil. But of course you can change this based on your intended use of the plastic.
Make sure to get all the bumps of corn starch out you want it to be completely dissolved
It should look a bit like milk.
