The Problem: Many disposable plates and utensils are plastic, which is produced with fossil fuels and does not decompose easily.
The Solution: Produce them from pig urine, of course. A Denmark company called Agroplast can take urea compounds a key component of urine and use it to produce bioplastics that can be made into biodegradable plates and utensils. Other companies use less cringe-inducing starters like vegetable oil, but the Dutch company says pig urine, fraught with health hazards and high disposal costs unless processed, is a better environmental solution.
