devise an activity to show that organic waste is biodegradable while plastic is not
- Take two beaker A and B.
Put moist soil in the both.
Put organic waste in the beaker A and Plastic in beaker B.
After a week or two you will find that the organic waste are decomposed while the plastics are not.
This proves that organic waste is biodegredabe and plastic is not.
Objective- To Show That Organic Wastes Are Biodegradable While Plastics Are Not
Materials- Some Plastic Things And Organic Waste Such As Dung Etc And Garden.
ProcedureNow Get To A Garden Dig 2 Pits About 30cm Deep Each
Burry The Plastic Things And Organic Wastes In Separate Pits.
Sprinkle Some Water To Both The Pits.

Observe The Pit After 1 month
Observation-You Would Notice That No Change Takes Place In Plastic Kept Pit And Some Foul Smell May Also Be There
But In The Second Pit You Would Notice That No Organic Waste Is There Only Black-Brown Manure Is There.
Reason- Organic Wastes Are Biodegradable Thats Why They Are Decomposed By Action Of Certain Microganisms While Plastics Are Not
Conclusion- Plastics Are Non Biodegradable While Organic Wastes Are Biodegradable.
- label it A & B
- put moist soil in both
- put organic waste in A
- put plastic in beaker B
- after a week you will find organic waste are decomposed while plastics are not.
- this proves that organic waste is biodegradable while plastics are not.
I hope my answer would help you a lot. Please give me a thumbs up from your side.
