Potato Plastic is a form of biodegradable bioplastic made from potatoes and water. With this plastic, you can make cutlery, bags and other single-use items. While items made of traditional plastic will last for 450 years, Potato Plastic will dissolve in two months if it ends up in nature. Since these items are normally used around 20 minutes, the team behind Potato Plastic think it is unreasonable for them to last that much longer than the purpose intended.
