Imagine an incredible edible plastic grocery bag.

The title image is from Pixabay and it is a sunset in Indonesia.

In a place on the other side of the world, a country that is plagued with plastic trash, made from the yuca root, in a place called Indonesia.

Imagine eating your yuca root grocery bag or even drinking it after it dissolves completely in water? Awesomely something to really think about. Some things I have seen on the internet have never once been shown on network television. I wonder why? Probably doesn't make the corporations a profit.

The video sparked a bit of encouragement in me. I like the way people all around the world are finding different methods to recycle and instead of destroying nature, are actually saving parts of it. I think the video is one I should share here so here below is a link to the video.

Yes, that's really interesting. Some bags over here are made from potato starch

Sorry. I'm not enthusiastic. Next they'll raise the price on real food and the poor will be expected to eat trash bags. No reality requires real answers.

That is a good start.

Better that than plastic. We need more ways to do thing that eliminate plastic. Some concepts are better than others I will have to admit.

There's a simple answer that would work. Sadly it's pretty much the only thing that halfway works in this world... legislation preventing at least some of its manufacture and use. If it never exists, it never needs disposal. I'm not encouraging legislation. In fact, the worse it gets, the more we should put our trust in the Kingdom. That WILL fix it. For good.

I am ready for the Kingdom.

Is it ready for you?

Considering what goes into many processed foods these days eating the plastic bag it comes in is probably more healthy! emoticon :smile:

Funny about edible packing there were some actual edible starch packing peanuts, as they are called in a box of goods sent to receiving at Office retailer I worked for, and the guy in the warehouse picked out one and ate it just to show that it was completely edible, but I didn't try one. I mean, I would not eat packing peanuts, even if they were made from corn fritters.
