Creating a bio plastic clothes peg from seaweed / agar

by Cathy Bolger

 

Hi ,

we have been trying to use the recipes using agar , glycerol etc to make a compound strong enough to make a bio plastic clothes peg.

We can’t get the compound rigid enough .

Also we can’t source sorbitol easily . Tried contacting a local confectionery company but they wouldn’t assist.

Any ideas what might create a rigid compound ( like the orange material shown at the end of Brandon’s video).

Thanks in advance,
Cathy
