The oily truth behind plastic production

The oily truth behind plastic production

April 20, 2018

The latest in CIG’s series of infographics regarding plastic pollution reveals the dark truth behind what plastic is made of.

As the infographic explains, plastic is made using oil, with the plastics industry utilising roughly 8 percent of the total amount of oil produced, equivalent to the amount used by the global aviation industry.

Alarmingly, this figure is expected to increase to 20 percent by 2050.

As oil is a non-renewable resource, and plastic is such a major contributor to global waste and pollution, these statistics are troubling and pose a serious environmental threat. However, there is a viable solution, as CIG’s infographic informs us that, by recycling our printer cartridges, we can salvage 11 million gallons of oil in a mere 7 months.
