Question:

If all the waste we generate is biodegradable, will this have no impact on the environment?

Answer:

Biodegradable waste materials do not exist in nature for long. Some are affected by the environment but they get decomposed in a short time. The decomposed matter can be converted into manure which will be beneficial for the plants. However, it may still pollute the environment if they are not decomposed within a particular period of time or else the accumulation of the waste will lead again to pollution. It will become a breeding ground for flies causing the spread of diseases.
