JT, thank you for publishing this article. It was informative and made me consider some things about my own personal recycling efforts. I had no idea that the petrochemical industry sees plastic-production as their salvation to global efforts to reduce fossil fuel usage. The less fuels we put into our vehicles, the cheaper the price of the petroleum for the plastic makers - creating a financial disincentive to source from recycled plastics.
