What gets destroyed by the production of plastics?

    Plastic is made from oil and other chemicals. Oil can be found only in a couple of places and as demands rise and supply decreases it is going to be more and more expensive. Moreover oil extraction has a big impact on the environment, such as disruption of sensitive environments, like ocean habitat, tundra and rain forests. Also transportation of oil is problematic as we can hear from news almost monthly that another oil tanker spilled oil in the ocean. And there is also some toxic by-products in extraction and refinement of oil.
