Why havent scientists tried to use other polymers instead of ethyl polymers?

Im curious because all of our plastic containers are mainly made out of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or HDPE which is high-density polyethylene.

    There are many other polymers that are used for plastics.  PVC is polyvinyl chloride, styrofoam is made of expanded polystyrene and many dairy tubs are made out of plastic number 5 or polypropylene.  So as you can see, there are many other types of molecules that polymers plastics are made from.
