Peak Plastic: The Rise or Fall of Our Synthetic World

Author(s): Buffington, Jack;
Contributors: Buffington, Jack;
Abstract:

Shows why plastics, in aggregate, have become a toxin to humans, wildlife, and the planet, and proposes novel solutions that involve neither traditional recycling nor giving up plastic.


• Provides a realistic solution for our use of plastic: not to eliminate it, but to innovate it

• Views plastic not only as a known environmental and health hazard but as a material critical to our future and therefore worth revising for future use

• Explains what we must do—and by when—in order to be able to keep using plastic without harming the planet or our health

• Shows the links between the environmental, toxicological, and socioeconomic challenges in our use of plastic, and how these dangers can be remedied by supply chain innovation

• Introduces two significant disruptive innovations that if implemented, will save us from the growing problem posed by synthetics
