Drowning in plastic: What are the alternatives to keeping people and the planet safe?

Reuse, reduce, recycle is not good enough. Did you know there is a limit to how many times plastic can be recycled before it chemically breaks down? Now recycled plastics are an additive ingredient in new products, such as clothing, dog collars, playground equipment and rugs. But microplastics shed from these items, making environmental removal near impossible. Can greener chemistry help us rethink plastic? Hear about environmentally friendly alternatives on the rise and how they will save the world from drowning in plastic.
