Plastic of the future: Bioplastics may offer a solution to the plastic predicament
A southern pine in the southeastern United States grows quickly, practically like a weed. This tree will inevitably be cut down.

It is raised to be harvested and chopped into wood chips to live out its fate — not as pulp to make paper, but as feedstock to make a new type of plastic.
