Biodegradable products form weed (Water Hyacinth).

An organization named Earth Trust uses water hyacinth stems in preparing the biodegradable paper, designing biodegradable cups, plates, boxes, and other environmentally friendly daily-use products that are cheaper and can serve as an alternative for plastic and thermocol cups, plates, dishes, and glasses.
