Polluting oil & gas co's make toxic plastic in deadly petrochemical plants.

Updated: Oct 3, 2020

At Echotopia, we are on the plastic-free path because the petrochemical industry uses polluting oil and gas to make plastic. The results? Devastating community health and environmental impacts across the country, especially in economically disadvantaged areas. Earthjustice tells it: https://earthjustice.org/features/petrochemicals-explainer


"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...."
