After seeing this video, I got thinking about something I read the other day that could help a lot with all the plastic we produce. Daniel Burd, a 16-year-old kid, has founda couple of strains of bacteria that, when combined, can break down plastic! Yeah! Hopefully we won’t find out later that this could cause more problems.
We should still cut back on plastic, but it would be cool if we could break down our existing plastic bag mess. You go, Daniel Burd. You’re going to do great things. Hold up your first prize from the Canada-Wide Science Fair and be proud!. Unlike me who wound up going there 15 years ago with some pictures plastered with phenolphthalein that turned pink when exposed to ammonia, you belong there. Not only do you belong there, you certainly deserve to win.
