Problem- Innovation Challenge: Come up with an Eco-friendly alternative to single use plastic

Single plastic use in Sierra Leone poses serious problems:

Burning of plastic in the open air leads to environmental pollution due to the release of poisonous chemicals. The polluted air, when inhaled by humans and animals, affects their health and can cause respiratory problems.

Animals also mistake single use plastic as food and can choke or become fatally ill from toxins — such as BPA, flame retardants, and PVC — as well as from other chemicals it soaks up. If they’re not eaten, these plastic products can ensnare wildlife and end their lives by immobilizing or strangling them.

We are looking for an alternative single use plastic.
