BioPlastic: Friend or Foe?

BioPlastic: Friend or Foe?

For the last year or so, we've been buying biodegradable dog waste bags for cleaning up our cats' litter box. The ones we buy are biodegradable because they're made out of cornstarch -- they're bioplastic.

How do you feel about bioplastics?

We were pretty happy with our little bags, but we just read something at EcoGeek that is making us think twice -- 8 Reasons Why Bioplastic is Worse Than Regular Plastic.

All 8 points made complete sense to us -- but now we're in a bit of a bind: We still want to that think buying the compostable bags is better than bringing home plastic bags from the grocery store.

What do you think?
