Polluting oil & gas co's make toxic plastic in deadly petrochemical plants.
Updated: a day ago
At Echotopia, we are on the plastic-free path because the petrochemical industry uses polluting oil and gas to make plastic - with our tax dollars, via their lobby. The results are devastating community health and environmental impacts across the U.S. Earthjustice tells it:
"As we move towards zero-emissions and 100% clean energy, the oil and gas industry is launching a last-ditch effort to protect its profit, betting big on petrochemicals: toxic chemicals made from oil and gas that are used to make plastics, industrial chemicals, and pesticides...."
