EJ Baker, a former student and friend shared a story about a mushroom (Pestalotiopsis Microspora) that likes to eat plastic.
Got me to thinking that to test the possibilities someone should try and make a home "plastic composting kit". I guess other people had the same idea, because they seem to be sold out of the mushroom spores here.
Green/"gray"(?) thumb types, take up the charge!! Kickstarter and Eco-fame await!
