Plastics invented over 100 years ago is an organic material just like wood, paper or wool and is a modern material of choice as it makes possible to balance the needs with environmental concerns.
The raw materials used to produce plastics are natural products such as cellulose, coal, natural gas, salt and, of course, crude oil.
Plastics is everyday life-the use of plastic products helps make our lives cleaner, easier, safer and more enjoyable. We find plastics in the clothes we wear, the houses we live in, and the cars we travel in. Toys, televisions, computers all contain plastics.
