British scientists have discovered a way to create plastic-making polymers from sugars found in common, fast growing trees and grasses. The natural plastics currently on the market don’t biodegrade readily, but the plastics made with the new polymer would be compostable with other organic waste.

Research to make sugar-based plastics for the mass market is underway and may bring the product to market by 2015.
