Abstract

Plastics are harmful to the environment and also to the human body. The null hypothesis is that both plastic and bio spoons don't have a difference. The alternate is that the bio spoons can exceed the plastic utensil during testing. GreenWorks, HaloGreen, EcoFriendly bio spoons, and Comfy traditional plastic spoons were through different kinds of trials. Boiling is where the spoons were trying to survive inside the boiling water for one hour. A survey tests people asked which spoon utensils are preferable but doesn't know what kind of spoon is being used. Composting is where the spoons are inside the composter. Spoons are getting water once a week and placed on a heating pad. Boiling test every spoon survived in the boiling water. HaloGreen bio spoon is the favorite, while the EcoFriendly is the least favorite spoon. GreenWorks and Ecofriendly bio spoon show a sign of decomposition. People like the HaloGreen bio spoons because of the round scoop, Ecofriendly bio has the least because it's deep. The bio spoons can replace the plastic based on these results. These results are important to support the alternate hypothesis. Make a bio spoon, and there is a plant seed inside.

Plastics are harmful to the environment and also to the human body. The null hypothesis is that both plastic and bio spoons don't have a difference. The alternate is that the bio spoons can exceed the plastic utensil during testing. GreenWorks, HaloGreen, EcoFriendly bio spoons, and Comfy traditional plastic spoons were through different kinds of trials. Boiling is where the spoons were trying to survive inside the boiling water for one hour. A survey tests people asked which spoon utensils are preferable but doesn't know what kind of spoon is being used. Composting is where the spoons are inside the composter. Spoons are getting water once a week and placed on a heating pad. Boiling test every spoon survived in the boiling water. HaloGreen bio spoon is the favorite, while the EcoFriendly is the least favorite spoon. GreenWorks and Ecofriendly bio spoon show a sign of decomposition. People like the HaloGreen bio spoons because of the round scoop, Ecofriendly bio has the least because it's deep. The bio spoons can replace the plastic based on these results. These results are important to support the alternate hypothesis. Make a bio spoon, and there is a plant seed inside.
