New plastic that disappears when you want it to by Wenchen

A new research found a plastic that can be reduced to its building blocks by exposure to UV light. It can then be remade. The plastic is made out of materials derived from plant parts. This type of plastic has many advantages over the ordinary type of plastic. It can be broken down within hours but ordinary plastic takes decades to do so.

In my opinion, I feel that this type of plastic must be widely used as it is eco-friendly and saves resources. It can also be recycled quickly and need not be dumped in landfills, oceans and other natural habitats once used. The type of plastic we are using right now comes from fossil fuel, which is non-renewable, but this type of plastic is long-lasting.
