Difference between biodegradable and non-biodegradable

Biodegradable and Non-biodegradable are types of waste materials (or substances) that are categorized on the basis of their 

degradation. All the material tends to degrade in the natural surrounding. Some are easily degradable and some take thousands 

of years to degrade. 

Biodegradable materials are substances that can be decomposed or broken down by microorganisms and other living organisms.

Biodegradables generally include organic wastes like leftover foodstuffs, kitchen waste like fruits and vegetable peels, etc. 

However, non-biodegradable materials are substances that cannot be decomposed or broken down by microorganisms

and other living organisms rather leading to pollution. 

Non-biodegradables are generally inorganic wastes like plastic bags, cans, bottles, chemicals, etc.
