Natureoral company is an early startup working in collaboration with major Virginia higher education institutions to create new land and sea biodegradable materials as plastic substitutes in healthcare and consumer products to reduce the global plastic pollution crisis. With countries initiating bans on single-use plastics such as straws, eating utensils, bags etc. there is a lack of degradable substitutes in the marketplace. With the Covid -19 pandemic, single-use infection control barrier waste products in healthcare such as cover films, masks and gowns have dramatically risen significantly adding to the pollution pandemic.
