As the issue of single use plastics grips the nation, many have begun to advocate for alternative and more environmentally friendly materials such as paper and corn-starch.

However, Niall Dunne, chief executive of Polymateria, a plastic waste reduction company, believes that we should be altering the properties of plastic to make it biodegradable instead.

“Plastic captured the mind-set overnight, but there’s a lot of pushing agendas, we need to be super collaborative, draw people in and make them part of the innovation instead.”
