The Life of Plastic


Plastic. One of the most detrimental yet useful materials known to humanity. It is found from the bustling metropolises of the world all the way to the humble suburbs and countryside. We can’t get enough of it. While most people know how harmful it can be to the environment, they normally don’t understand the scale of the problem. It has been harming biodiversity globally and causing a multitude of problems ranging from global warming to the reduction of habitats and a decline in overall environmental health. In this infographic, the lifecycle of plastic and a plastic bottle will be portrayed from extraction all the way to disposal. Furthermore, some inventive alternatives to plastic packaging are discussed as well. This should hopefully inform and encourage you to do something about plastic pollution and create a greener future for all.
