Biodegradable Plastic Bag 

Some of the smart folks at the University of Missouri (Science and Technology) are working on a plastic bag that will disintegrate in about four months.  Considering our addiction to plastic bags… and the fact that they tend to stick around in our land fills forever… this is a very good thing.  The majority of American’s just don’t bother to bring a cloth recyclable bag with them when they go shopping.
