Not wanting to rewrite the encyclopedia, I’ll just link to this informative Plastic guide written by the Huffington Post.
They cover the it all, from history to chemistry and biopolymers. Jump down to a link below if you want more info on a related environmental topic.
Things I may write about that HowStuffWorks already wrote about:
- How Recycling Works
- How Landfills Work
- How Oil Drilling Works
- How Oil Refining Works
- Is your vinyl siding killing you?
- Why is the world’s largest landfill in the Pacific Ocean?
- I am wondering what the little recycling symbols that you see on some plastic items mean. How many different symbols are there?
