Plastics have been in the news with increasing regularity over the last few years. Mostly negatively as elements like micro-plastics are found where they shouldn't be and us humans throw away plastic into the seas, again where plastic shouldn't be.
Plastic has been a revolution for humanity in may ways, indeed it's hard to imagine life without it, from food packaging to cars, to everyday items that are everywhere, plastics touch our lives many times a day. The problem is many fold with not just usage, and production but how long it takes to breakdown. The benefits of plastic, durability, is also its main problem. The planet and wildlife is being choked by plastics and we need to understand how to mitigate our dependancy on non biodegradable products.
