Really? Microwave The Bejesus Out Of Orange Peels To Make Biodegradable Plastic?

Using A Microwave To Turn Orange Peels Into Biodegradable PlasticIs this news or is somebody out there goofing on us by doling out nonsense stories to distract us? It’s hard to tell when you read an article like Orange peels could be made into biodegradable plastic. I’m starting to think the folks over at the Weekly World News, the world’s only reliable news (their words, not mine), is behind all of these stories for the greenies to consume and get excited about.

Maybe a better story would be that on your next shopping trip, choose ONE additional non-plastic option so these guys don’t have to nuke oranges for 2-hours to produce one that is bio-degradable.
