Most of what we believe about plastics and the environment comes from internet gossip, which is notoriously unreliable. Do you care enough about the environment to look at the peer-reviewed science instead?. The headlines and articles we read are not supported by science and evidence. Studies reveal that three in four Americans overestimate their ability to identify fake news, which is why we need an independent, trusted source of information. It turns out that only a few percent of the wisest people actually care enough to look at the evidence. Are you one of them? I hope so, because our future depends on it.

This site is by a professional scientist who spent over 1000 hours reading thousands of scientific articles and reports to find the truth. By reviewing what is probably the World’s largest collection of science, I discovered that almost everything we’ve been told is simply untrue.

I don’t care if people are against plastics based on the facts, but at present people are against plastics based on clear, unsubstantiated lies. As a leading plastic materials scientist, I do not make, sell or market plastics. Furthermore, my research on this topic was all done without any funding to keep it free of bias. The website, the videos and even the book are all provided for free, so that we can all start making wiser choices based on hard evidence.
