A stretch mark is a type of scar that develops when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly. The abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture.

Plastic is both a blessing and a curse; although plastic revolutionized the way we live, the impact it has today is detrimental. In an attempt to resolve this issue, bio-plastics have emerged as a possible solution. How does plastic degradation effect the environment? Although all plastic is biodegradable, this process takes many, many years. Traditional plastic like PET (polyethylene terephthalate) can’t readily decompose or biodegrade. Why? Both processes are dependent on bacteria that consume and breakdown waste into simple matter. But PET is made with chemicals that bacteria
