How do you treat plastic so it biodegrades? Presumably it doesn’t biodegrade into nasty micro plastics that regular plastic will over time, so what does it do?

We use plastic treated with d2w, according to the producers the specially treated plastic under test conditions found 91% biodegradation within 24 months. This is not breaking down into microplastics, but becoming bio-available food for bacteria and fungi. It can also be put in regular recycling too alongside other untreated plastics with no negative effects.
Even so, we are working towards being entirely plastic free in the next couple of years.
