One of the biggest problems facing Earth today is man-made: plastic. Because this material is so versatile, it became the default for making just about everything for years. But very little plastic is recycled, and that which is recycled is done so improperly. Readers may be familiar with bans on plastic bags and other solutions to the plastic problem, and hopefully this will help them understand how and why we got into trouble in the first place as well as how people might be able to fix it.
