Bacteria That Can Eat Plastic & Turn It Into Water

The fact that plastic takes almost forever to degrade is a huge problem, especially since there will come a point in time where we will simply run out of space to keep our plastic trash. While that might provide some relief in the future use of plastics, it doesn’t solve the problem of plastics we have at the moment, but scientists Jenny Yao and Miranda Wang might have come up with a solution.
