The discovery of plastics revolutionized our society by introducing lightweight and strong products with many uses. Plastics are used to manufacture an incredible amount of products we use every day—and that amount is only rising. People now understand that plastics are not environmentally friendly to our ecosystem. They have become a greater part of the municipal solid waste (MSW) stream—growing from less than one percent in the 1960s to 13 percent in 2014. Now, recycling plastics or switching to biopolymer plastics have become a huge factor in our everyday lives. Not just at home, but many companies are taking the initiative to go green and be responsible for our future.
