The campaign for the use of environmental friendly materials has been quite productive for some time now. The orientation has gone wide to the extent that many people in the Western countries have started to shop for products that are environmental friendly. Thus, the companies producing or using these products are experiencing growing market share.

One of the materials that have drawn more attention in recent times is packaging materials. Many food production companies have change from the use of plastics bags to biodegradable bags. Fast food industry has also adapted the use of biodegradable material for serving and packaging food. Even they also use these materials as “take away bags”.

However, some retailing shops are also providing biodegradable bags for their customers. But customers don’t use these bags because they can easily tear when loaded with heavy items. So, they will prefer to use plastic bags which are more elastic and stress resistance.

So, there is need for biodegradable bag that can be resist tear and stress just like the plastic bags. Researchers in the field of science have to work on finding more durable biodegradable materials that can be use bags.

Research question: What could be the technology that will be the solution to a biodegradable materials that resist tear and stress?
