Now the plastic age.
It doesn’t have the same ring to it, yet it’s undeniably the age we are in. If we don’t want to be in this age, we need to innovate our way out. New materials that are more friendly to the environment and cheap, or political policies that tie in the full cost of disposal into the cost of plastic goods are starting points.
It’s no doubt that plastics did have a positive effect on many things, however, perhaps seeing the effect of this age persisting as long as the other ages isn’t something we want as a society.
