Our world is producing a lot of waste at an alarming rate.  Engineers and scientists are using green chemistry to invent sustainable solutions for our daily needs.  One focus is on reducing single-use plastic waste by turning to bio-materials. In this activity, we will be creating edible bio-plastic from algae products and looking at the chemistry behind the reaction.
