Report on plastic in nature

A growing impact that won’t disappear quickly

We live surrounded by plastic, a material invented 150 years ago that was a revolution for being resistant, light and cheap. Polyethylene, polyester, polypropylene or polyvinyl chloride may not be very familiar terms for most of us but they are more present in our daily lives than we think: they are used as building materials, in our vehicles, in food processing and packaging, in smartphones, in clothes, in the composition of many cosmetics and even in cutlery. Now plastic is everywhere and, it won’t disappear anytime soon.
