Researchers: Use of Plastics = Helping Combat Climate Change

April 22, 2022

What do the researchers say?

To drive down greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), it’s sensible to base our decisions on science. Multiple researchers have compared the environmental footprint of materials such as plastics, glass, metals, and paper.

Their findings on GHGs?

“Due to reduced greenhouse gas emissions compared to alternatives over their life cycles, plastic products and packaging are playing a key role in lowering our carbon footprint and are helping combat climate change.”
