Introduction Welcome to the Plastic Age, as scientists have named it, with many types of research showing plastic pollution has rapidly been increasing in the past few decades. Therefore I guess it’s safe to say this topic is not new. We have been introduced to this environmentally changing moment for some time now.

Life-saving devices were brought to medicine, space travel became possible, incubators, equipment for clean water drinking, and many more.
