In this cookbook the preparation of some recipes for bioplastics will be carried out from the elaboration of ingredients such as polymers, pigments and natural textures. With the aim of demonstrating how easy and feasible it is to approach these materials, using ingredients and work tools that are very familiar to everyone. It is important to get in touch with the material and demystify all the prejudices that exist around them.
Pretend to disseminate this knowledge with the intention of helping in awareness and good consumption habits. Therefore, the opportunities that these materials provide to replace traditional plastic will be debated, in disciplines such as product design, arts and crafts, and then put it into practice.
