Plastics have become synonymous with everyday life in our modern era. They’re so common, we rarely give a moment’s notice to the many items with plastic in them we use multiple times a day. Whether it’s keeping our food fresh or keeping our kids’ heads safe when playing, life without plastics would be remarkably different when you stop and think about it.
The use of plastics isn’t limited to everyday household items either. Piping for homes and industry are one example, and molded prosthetic limbs help those with devastating injuries lead productive lives.
