Soft plastic fishing lures are among the many PVC plastic products that contain phthalates, a hazardous substance that's been linked to various cancers and reproductive problems. Even without the phthalates, plastic lures pose a problem. They don't degrade. Every plastic lure that is lost or discarded becomes an environmental hazard for fish and other wildlife. The lures can permanently block animals' digestive and intestinal tracts, causing malnutrition and even death. If they're not eaten, they just pile up, creating a layer of trash on the lake or river bottom.
FoodSource Lures solve the problem. Developed by the Department of Nutrition and Food Science and the Department of Fisheries and Allied Aquaculture at Auburn University, they're 100% real food that completely biodegrade when left behind.
Instead of buying plastic lures, try the 100% biodegradable alternative.
