The use of plastic products has promoted the development of science, but the ensuing environmental problems have become increasingly serious. At present, most of the waste plastics are treated by incineration and landfill methods, but they have failed to solve the pollution problem. Since plastics are difficult to degrade naturally, the toxic gas generated after incineration causes the pollution to spread further. Another approach is to bury plastic products in the ground, which usually takes nearly 300 years to degrade completely. If plastic products are discarded in the ocean, it will threaten the lives of a marine organism. According to statistics, at least millions of marine animals die every year due to accidental ingestion of plastic. Therefore, it is imperative to replace ordinary plastics with degradable materials.
2、Advantage of Eco-friendly
1）Reduced emission of toxic gas, lowered air pollution, shrank ozone hole;
2）Mitigated climatic variation and energy waste, defensed threat of Greenhouse
4）Avoided the destruction of forest area and soil;
5）Beautify the environment to satisfy the needs of human life and work.

4、Description of 100% completely degradable handle: How is it degraded? What are its benefits?
1）Wheat Straw Handle (PLA): Mill waste wheat straw into powder, mix PLA extrusion granulation and form wheat straw handle by injection moulding. This handle can be completely degraded in the environment.
2）Method of Degradation: The common degradation method in nature is microbial degradation. PLA is degraded by micro-organisms, such as Penicillin, Humus, Sickle Enzyme, Candida, etc. Wheat straw handle (PLA) is discarded in the environment for composting, through microbial degradation, the lipid bonds in PLA will be decomposed to produce lactic acid. Finally, the lactic acid is degraded to CO2 and H2O.
3）Benefits: Main materials of Wheat Straw Handle(PLA) are wheat, straws, and PLA. The PLA is polymerized with lactic acid as the main raw material. The source of the raw materials is sufficient and renewable, mainly using corn, cassava, etc. The production process of PLA is pollution-free and its finished product is biodegradable. So the PLA is an ideal green material.
