Recall that all plastics are made of carbon – plastics don’t break down.  This means that plastics are pollution.

Compostable plastics (PLA Molecules) do not break down any faster than PET Plastics.  PLA plastics need to be melted down (65 0 Celsius for 35 days).  This means PLA plastics cannot be recycled in a traditional manner.
