The Plastics Paradox is the first and only book to reveal the truth about plastics and the environment. Based on over 400 scientific articles, it dispels the myths that the public believe today.
- We are told that plastics are not green when in fact, they are usually the greenest choice according to lifecycle analysis (LCA)
- We are told that plastics create a waste problem when they are proven to dramatically reduce waste, for example replacing 1lb of plastic requires 3-4lb of the replacement material
- We are told that plastics take 1000 years to degrade when in fact a plastic bag disintegrates in just one year outdoors
- We are led to believe that plastic bags and straws are an issue when in fact they barely register in the statistics
The list goes on...
Everything you believe now is untrue and we are making policies that harm the environment based on bad information. After reading The Plastics Paradox you will be able to make wise choices that help create a brighter future for us and for our children.
