“MIXING BIODEGRADABLE AND NON-BIODEGRADABLE” Background of the Study:
Philippines is now facing many problems and one of these are “WASTES”. There are two kinds of wastes the “NON-BIODEGRADABLE”(Di-Nabubulok) and “BIODEGRADABLE” (Nabubulok) but what if it’s mixed with each other?

There are many kinds of biodegradable and non-biodegradable wastes and some of the examples of biodegradable wastes are: left-over, paper, wood ad etc. and the example of non-biodegradable wastes are: styrofoam, plastics, hairstrands and etc.
Then non-biodegradable wastes are the ones who caused the calamities that happen in our society now a day. It takes more than 50 years for them to decompose.

We humans are the major cause of the non-biodegradable waste everywhere; we create all sorts of plastic bags, glass, styrofoam and etc. even if we know that this waste will not decompose easily. How are we going to lessen the use of this non-biodegradable material? What can we do to help prevent calamities cause by this waste?
