Fossil fuel industry worsening the global plastics crisis

Dec. 21, 2018, Teen Vogue: "The global plastics crisis... is far greater than a consumer-behavior issue, like recycling: It is directly connected to the fossil fuel industry and to climate change, as 99% of plastics are derived from chemicals found in fossil fuels.
