Reducing plastic pollution by adding RNA-inspired ‘breaking points’

Source: Science Daily

Once plastic products are used and discarded, they can linger in oceans, collecting in large ‘garbage patches’ and harming sea life. One potential solution, a biodegradable polymer called polylactide (PLA), has so far not fully lived up to its promise, showing little sign of breakdown once in seawater.
