Abstract

Plastic products are very common in our modern life. According to approximate, every year we use1.6 million barrels of oil just for producing plastic water bottles. Plastic waste is one of the major concern now and many types of wastes that take too long to decompose. Normally, plastic products can take up to 1,000 years to decompose in landfills. Even According to estimates, every year we use approximately 1.6 million barrels of oil just for producing plastic water bottles. Plastic waste is one of many types of wastes that take too long to decompose. Normally, plastic items can take up to 1,000 years to decompose in landfills. Even plastic bags we use in our everyday life take anywhere from 10 to 1,000 years to decompose, and plastic bottles can take 450 years or more. we use in our daily life take anywhere from 10 to 1,000 years to decompose, and plastic bottles can take 450 years or more. Therefore, plastic pollution became more hazardous nowadays. This research was successfully producing bioplastic sheet from our daily household waste materials as we throw away our household waste materials everyday. In future prospects, bioplastic from household waste materials can be developed as plastic bag, plastic bottles and food packaging and will reduce the plastic pollution.
