A new study out of MSU finds that some additives that supposedly help plastic bags biodegrade really aren’t effective. Issues of biodegradation and recycling are a lot more complicated than “good plastic vs. bad plastic".

Current State’s Melissa Benmark talks with a co-author of the study, Dr. Susan Selke, who is the Interim Director and a Professor in MSU’s School of Packaging.
