Those were just two of the 50-plus entries in this year’s Postcode Lottery Green Challenge, an annual competition that awards the world’s largest prize for sustainable entrepreneurship.

Dr. Morse, who recently earned her doctorate in civil and environmental engineering at Stanford, says her company uses a closed loop process to produce some of the most affordable bio-based and biodegradable plastics available.
