When did we first start making and using plastic?

    Alexander Parkes invented the first plastic, which he unveiled at the 1892 Great International Exposition in London. But his invention didn’t manage to become a success because of high raw material costs. It was only by the 1920s, with the discovery of nylon, did the plastics become popular. Since then different types of plastics were invented for different purposes. From 1974 onwards plastic is the most used material in the world.
