Biodegradable alternative to plastic bags gets backing in crowdfunding campaign


A biodegradable and washable bag invented by two Czech students will reportedly come onto the Czech market in September. The bag, made from a unique material, is meant as an alternative to one-use plastic bags which negatively impact the environment. The Czech News Agency reported that the designers, who are medical students, launched the project using a crowdfunding campaign; it was funded in just three days.
