    Depending on the type of plastic, the ingredients can vary. The essential components present in nearly all types of plastic, though, are carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, chlorine and sulfur. To produce the polymers for plastics, natural resources such as coal, oil, and natural gas are often synthesized for their carbon content.

    There is also corn plastic, which is produced from corn ethanol, and is a very eco-friendly, non-toxic kind of plastic.
