Saving Nara's Sacred Deer With Edible 'Plastic' Bags

In 2019, 9 deer from Japan's Nara Park were found dead with plastic waste in their stomachs, one with 9.5 pounds of trash. A Japanese entrepreneur teamed up with a design firm and paper manufacturer to create a new type of bag that's safe for the deer to eat. These bags are made from recycled milk carton pulp and rice bran. 6 local businesses are using the bags as part of a trial. Nara Park's deer are believed to be divine messengers and are one of the main tourism attractions in the area.
