Biodegradable Containers and Explosions!

Nothing like green, right?

Research from North Carolina State University shows that so-called biodegradable products are likely doing more harm than good in landfills, because they are releasing a powerful greenhouse gas as they break down.

The gas is methane, which is highly explosive besides its 'greenhouse' negative.

It's usually accompanied by the sulfur-smell, too.
