Everything flows, but only the macromolecules are worth the time.

Yes, polymers made from avocados. Just another example of:
the creativity of chemists
everyday things (including food) being made of chemicals
turning waste into treasure
As I've said before, making plastic (or any other chemical) from something besides petroleum may appear miraculous to non-chemists, but no one else. The real miracle in my mind, is making them from petroleum. That sticky, goopy mess that we have to dig down tens of thousands of feet to find doesn't suggest to my mind feedstock for plastics or chemicals.
So if the avocados are certified as organic, does that mean the polymer is Organic-Organic? Double organic? O-squared?
