There is ways that we should think about plastic though which will no doubt help to reduce the damaging effects of producing and consuming this human designed, synthetic and chemically made material. Plastic’s core ingredients, and its sheer pervasiveness are problematic from the get-go. Adding fuel to this (already toxic) fire is the fact that most plastics are single-use. By design, single-use plastics are intended to be used once before being discarded.
