About Plastic

Hi again,welcome back to our post about plastic.In this post we will see the caused and the harmful side of the plastic.Let us see some facts about the plastic around the world :

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

· Plastic bags are made of polyethylene

· Polyethylene is a petroleum product

· Production contributes to air pollution and energy consumption

· Four to five trillion plastic bags are manufactured each year

· Americans use over 380 billion polyethylene bags per year

· Americans throw away approximately 100 billion polyethylene bags per year

· Of those 100 trillion plastic bags, 1% are recycled

· It takes 1000 years for polyethylene bags to break down

· As polyethylene breaks down, toxic substances leach into the soil and enter the food chain

· Approximately 1 billion seabirds and mammals die per year by ingesting plastic bags

· Plastic bags are often mistaken as food by marine mammals. 100,000 marine mammals die yearly by eating plastic bags.

· These animals suffer a painful death, the plastic wraps around their intestines or they choke to death

· Plastic bag choke landfills

· Plastic bags are carried by the wind into forests, ponds, rivers, and lakes

The Plastic History

Since our group have choosen plastic as the material that we will focus in this 3R project,here is some information about plastic.

Plastic is first invented by Alexander Parkes a
British chemist and inventor noted for his development of various industrial processes and materials and for having invented the first plastic.


Alexander Parkes

Here is some the biography of Alexander Parkes :

As a young man, Parkes was apprenticed to a brass founders. He later joined Elkington, Mason & Co. as manager of a casting department. His interest in the newly formed rubber industry in the 1840s and 1850s led to the invention of a new material which he called Parkesine. Parkesine was based on cellulose nitrate and is generally accepted as the first plastic.

Parkes introduced his new material to great public interest at the 1862 Great International Exhibition in London and was awarded a prize medal. He established The Parkesine Company at Hackney Wick in London with the aim of marketing Parkesine but the enterprise was not commercially successful. This was partly because the material proved to be highly flammable and partly because Parkes compromised the quality of his goods in an effort to keep the price down. The company was liquidated in 1868.

An energetic man and prolific inventor, Parkes took out more than 80 patents during his life, most of which related to metallurgy; he also fathered 20 children.
