Weekend Witness - - News -

A HIL­TON woman, Hay­ley Gray, re­cently launched her Go­ing Green pro­ject where she en­cour­ages stores to change from the nor­mal plas­tics to her biodegrad­able bags that she says dis­solve within two min­utes in hot wa­ter.

“If the packet does not melt in hot wa­ter it’s not biodegrad­able. Most of the pack­ets out there are 50% plas­tic but have the words biodegrad­able on them. The pack­ets that I am sell­ing are zero per­cent plas­tic,” Gray said.
