The interest in study of waste management is being increased worldwide presently as the pollution by various means is made day by day. Currently pollution due to plastic is a crisis threatening worldwide. Due to environmental concern, our society is facing an emergency to find a replacement to conventional plastics. Thereby, bioplastic is a suitable option, as they can be synthesized from various waste supplements .The waste utilization plays a vital role to overcome these pollutions and make possible to utilize the waste. Bioplastics are obtained from the biomass such as corn, sugarcane. Use of bioplastics is given more prominence in the present days as it reduces the environment pollution and accumulation of plastic wastes. Plastics have more applications in the packing industries, hence the accumulation of plastic as waste is on a higher rate, as it degradation of plastic is complex and slow. Hence, demand for the degradable bioplastic can be used as a substitute in most of the cases. This review indicates the applications, types of bioplastics and use of cheap substrates for bioplastic production.
