International Plastics Showcase

  The $400 billion plastics industry would like you to know that its products are becoming greener, lighter, more efficient, and less evil. Firms including Telles, a joint venture between Archer Daniels Midland and Metabolix, are making plastics from materials such as sugar and castor oil, while others are finding novel ways to reuse plastic. One example: Wyndham Hotels’ staff will soon begin wearing suits made of recycled plastic. That’s a uniform fit for the future. AB
