Plastics have been villainised in recent times, so much so that it can leave us wondering whether plastic has a place in the not-too-distant future. Yet some argue that it is not plastic which is the problem, but rather how we use it.
The Raconteur report on the Future of Plastics touches on the plastic tax, microplastic pollution and bioplastics amongst other topics.
As a business in bioplastics, we are always looking out for credible reports which can help us to see future trends or allow us to build internal reports with reliable statistics. For example, 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic waste were generated between 1950 and 2015 but only 9% of the plastic waste has been recycled.
