Oklahoman offers manufacturers, consumers sustainable plastics solution

Sharina Perry tried to enjoy a soft drink at a local eating establishment a few years ago, but she couldn’t help thinking about plastic waste.

The paper straw that came with her drink came apart before she was done. This spurred a train of thought about single-use plastics, paper alternatives and whether there might be a better solution for the planet’s environment and its people.

She began searching for a material that’s more durable than paper replacements, more biodegradable than plastic, is more compostable, is 100% recyclable and doesn’t release micro-plastics into the ground or aquifers when it is disposed of in a landfill. 

In short, it led her to question the global plastic consumption as a whole, and what might be done to help.
