The aim of this study was to identify the compostable plastic sub-category with supreme capabilities for rapid decomposition. In turn, the study intended to determine which sub-category of compostable plastics is most likely to facilitate a expeditious turnaround in trends of marine plastic compilation if universalized. The decomposition rate of oxo-biodegradable plastic was compared with the decomposition rate of bioplastic. Statistically significant results showed that on average, while oxo-biodegradable plastic underwent minute decomposition throughout its period of exposure, bioplastic underwent substantial decomposition.
