Plastic, in many of its forms, is a material that has been used to great effect in the health sector, revolutionised safe food storage, and even supported the growth of renewable energy from wind turbines and solar panels.
However, the convenience of single use plastics in our day to day lives has led to one of the greatest global environmental challenges. Oceans are being used as a dumping ground, city storm drains are clogged with waste exacerbating floods and spreading disease, and when consumed by livestock or fish, plastic also makes its way into the food chain that leads to our plates.
