 Bainbridge, Ga.- MHG, the manufacturer of one hundred percent biodegradable plastic, is pleased to announce they will be exhibiting at the 21st Annual CoastFest being hosted by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources/ Coastal Resources Division on October 3rd, 2015.  The event will take place from 10 am to 4 pm at the GA DNR Coastal Regional Headquarters in Brunswick, Ga.

The event will have more than seventy environmental, educational, research and resource exhibitors from throughout the southeast to educate attendees about Georgia’s unique coastal environment and ways to help preserve for the future.

“We are excited to showcase our products and to demonstrate alternatives for the single use items that end up in the ocean, harming the ecosystem,” stated Scott Tuten, Chief Marketing Officer of MHG. “It is inevitable that some things will escape waste management streams, but PHA provides a last line of defense, and ours is the only one with the certified ability to break down in the ocean.”

Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Angler, JTodd Tucker will be at the show to discuss the environmental impact of petro-plastic on freshwater and marine water, as well as the Rat-L-Trap lures that are being produced using MHG's PHA.
