Earth Day: How long will it take for your puppet to biodegrade?

Earth Day: How long will it take for your puppet to biodegrade?

Being puppet builders we deal with many hazardous materials; both to our individual health, and to the Earth. It being Earth Day- I’ve decided to investigate and find out how long it would take for the materials we use as puppet builders to biodegrade. Hopefully, it’ll make you think twice before throwing out those scraps in the waste basket.
Paper 2-5 Months
Rope 3-14 Months
Foam  1-12 Years
Leather 25-40 Years
Nylon Fabric  30-40 Years
Plastics  200-450 years

Please Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rethink.
