The Uses of Plastics

Although plastics have been used widely only in the past few decades, it's versatility has made it one of the most popular materials today. Plastics are used from everyday products such as plastic bottles and automobiles, to cutting-edge techologies like prosthetic limbs and the space program. It is the ideal choice for manufacturers to minimize the amount of materials and energy used to make a product.

Recycling plastics is a sure way to contribute to a cleaner and safer world. Plastics are derived from natural resources (typically oil and natural gas), and yet, because of plastics' unique characteristics - lightweight, durability, formability, they often conserve more resources during a product's life when compared to other materials.
