will strictly follow the Dipolog City Ordinance No. 13-245 otherwise known as "An Ordinance Regulating the Sale, Distribution or Use of Non- Compostable Plastic Bag such as Thin Film, Single-Use Carryout Plastic Bags and Polysterene Foam Products (Styrofoam/Styropor) Within the Territorial Jurisdiction of Dipolog City" since the researchers are using the concept of plastic in the study. The researchers are carried out to ensure that waste disposal management is strictly followed due to the fact that certain types of wastes such as plastics can be hazardous and can contaminate the environment if not handled properly. For the health and safety of the researchers, wearing of Personal Protective Equipment(PPE) is required especially in producing and testing the biodegradable plastic bags. The proposed research will only be applicable in testing its durability, water insolubility and it’s time to decompose and degrade and further observations will follow. 11

Operational Definition of Terms Biodegradable Plastic Bag - a bag made from cassava starches that can easily decompose. Cassava Starch- used as an additive that adds to the decomposing property to the biodegradable plastic. Durability- the capacity of the biodegradable plastic bag from cassava starch to hold a certain amount of load before it tears. White Vinegar – acts as a stabilizer in the experiment. Glycerol/Glycerin – the plasticizer component of the experiment. Time to decompose - the span of time for the biodegradable plastic bag from cassava starch to decay in soil and break down. Water solubility – the characteristic of the biodegradable plastic bag from cassava starch to dissolve in water. Sustainability – it is used as a components of biological diversity in a way and at a rate that does not lead to the long-term decline of biological diversity, thereby maintaining its potential to meet the needs and aspirations of present and future generations. 12

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
