Bio-Bubble degrades into plain water


I love popping the bubbles on plastic excelsior as much as the next chick, but I do always feel a tad guilty that I’m not folding it up like I’m some kind of eco-Martha Stewart intending to reuse it at some later date. Popping it is too enjoyable! And now, with Bio-Bubble, I can pop in peace, since it’s made of OBP: Oxo-biodegradable plastic, which is converted by micro-organisms into harmless water. It doesn’t just turn into tinier pieces of plastic, it actually gets eaten. Now that’s a kind of plastic even George Carlin might have something nice to say about. [GT]
