This unique team brings together chemists, environmental scientists, philosophers, linguists, economists, artists, writers, lawyers, and experts in many other fields, to holistically address the global plastics problem.
Plastic has been a transformative material for modern humans - offering properties that, for example, can stop food spoiling as quickly, allow us to go to space, and to create life-saving devices.
While over the last 50 years plastic’s high performance, low cost, lightweight nature and durability has solved many problems, in doing so it has contributed to many serious environmental crises.
