A recent study by the University of Plymouth led by research fellow Imogen Napper shows that bags labelled as biodegradable can still carry five pounds of shopping three years after being discarded as litter. Professor Richard Thompson calls for "clearer policy and international standards to define what we mean when we say something is biodegradable."

Difficult words from the video:
Led: guide physically or mentally
