Eco-Friendly Plastics – The Differences Explained

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceProfessional


Plastic is everywhere. It is unquestionably the world’s most versatile material and is used in everything from buildings, to cars, to pens, to furniture to food packaging. Unfortunately, plastic does not break down easily, if at all, and could pollute the environment long after we ourselves have left the Earth. As of 2018, 380 million tons of plastic is being produced worldwide every year, with 90% of these plastics being un-recyclable and entering oceans, rivers and seas, being pumped into landfill and killing animals in their natural habitats. Researchers suggest that at this rate, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish!!
