    So, if a trim hammer is used for trim, a framing hammer to frame, a railroad sledge for railroads it follows that a dogwood mallet is for dogwoods. Pity anyone around named Jack when THOSE hammers get going.

    If the plastic around laundry detergent pods are biodegradable...why can't they come up with that concept for other things we use so much plastic for?

    @Gloria Mitchell I have often wondered the same thing. There are plastics made from corn that are quite durable and biodegradable. I have never understood why they don't use them to make single-use products (like those bags everyone complains about). Durable plastics SHOULD be used for products required to be durable, like water and sewage pipes, but packing materials should always use the degradable stuff. Some "Styrofoam" packing is degradable and some is durable. Next time you get those "peanuts" in a package, stick a few in water and see if they go away. If they dissolve, you can use them in your garden or flush them down the toilet. Always test them first, however, as you never want to flush those durable things down the sewer or septic.

    Dern! And I was just now thinking of trying to flush my whiffle ball down the commode just to see what would happen. :).
    If it somehow got stuck, I remember that an M-80 always seemed to do something grand in my high school men’s room toilets. Or at least, that’s what I am told..............

    Due to my adorable squirrels rearranging everything in my garden, I ordered some biodegradable netting and some biodegradable stakes to hold it down. They arrived today. The stakes are supposed to break down and biodegrade in 24-36 months, yet they appear to be durable plastic, in that it looks and feels like plastic to me. If they can make these cheaply enough to sell a hundred of them for twenty bucks, why aren't they using this stuff in K-cups, straws, flossers, and other applications. It's produced by a plastics company. Perhaps it's a matter of how to define biodegradable. Maybe it breaks down into micro-plastics, or very small pieces of plastic, and some people will say that's bad. But then, plastic is made from petroleum products and that will eventually break down further. -- Ecoduty Contractor Grade Biodegradable Stakes
