Can plastic made from seaweed solve ocean pollution?

Israeli researchers at Tel Aviv University have created a biodegradable plastic, using seaweed polymers, that they hope will help solve the problem of ocean pollution. While traditional plastic is made from petroleum products that do not disintegrate, Dr. Alexander Golberg of the Porter School of Environmental Studies say seaweed-based bioplastic is a sustainable alternative.
