    This PDF resource includes an article about biodegradable plastics, as well as accompanying activity ideas perfect for learning at home or in school:

    • Debating whether newer bags that only take three years to decay are OK, or whether that's still not good enough
    • Listing as many words as possible that begin with the prefix ‘bio’
    • Writing a five-sentence story that follows a plastic bag's voyage from a shop all the way into the ocean
    • Investigating how much food these bags can hold, given they have a weight limit of 2kg. How many ways can children get 2kg of food into a bag using different items?
