Plastic is a very polarizing material. It divides people into two extremely opposite categories. One camp believes that plastic is a wonder material and has made our lives easier by penetrating every aspect of our life, be it food and pharma packaging, mobile and electronic devices, automobiles, apparels and shoes and so on, the list is endless. On the contrary, the other camp believes that plastic is a bane to our environment, and it should be banned as it pollutes the rivers and oceans, takes hundreds of years to degrade, has entered our food chain, is carcinogenic etc. There is no end to this debate and picking sides can be very difficult. We can neither ignore the conveniences that plastic has brought to our lives nor can we ignore the hazards and environmental pollution caused by it.
