  1. “I want to say one word to you. Just one word. Plastics”. - The Graduate (Movie).

    Plastic, with its long environmental half-life, the high energy cost of its production, its high toll on marine wildlife and birds, and the unknown long term affect on human health, needs to have its use and disposal methods examined more closely.

    Although we have been recycling some of our plastic waste, science is finding potentially better alternatives for some applications as well as increased recyclining uses.

    Attached below are some good articles on this issue:
