How the plastic pollution of today came to be

These days, plastic pollution is everywhere. When we buy a soda, eat at a fast food restaurant, order take-out, visit the local grocery store or even work on home improvement projects, we’re buying and using a wide variety of plastics.

The main culprits in the plastic pollution

There are two main types of plastics — synthetics and semi-synthetics. The former is made from mineral oils, coal or natural gas, accounting for 4% of worldwide oil and gas use. Semi-synthetics come from natural polymers, like cellulose.
