Composites are one of the most widely used materials because they can adapt to a variety of
situations. Other composites include metal matrix composites, nanocomposites, fiber composites,
and hybrid composites, and are used in many industries. We are now focusing on creating
environmentally friendly composites. Green composites are a special type of biocomposites with
the addition of a bio-based polymer matrix. Natural fibers represent an area of a polymer
research.Green composite materials derived from biodegradable materials resources continue to
attract widespread attention for environmental issues through integrated systems Plastics and
global development require changes to fossil resources. The purpose of this review is to
highlight recent events developments in products and applications of green composites. The
application of green composites is still increasing transportation, sporting goods, home use,
automobile, construction, etc. It is used every day in all areas. This review article also discusses
the recent developments in different biodegradable polymers and bio composites. This article
also discusses some recently developed green herbs and their mechanical properties and uses.
Defines a new model in selecting natural fibers from waste rather than valuable crops.
