Perspective: Plastics Industry Association CEO: Plastic saves lives

PLASTICS President and CEO Tony Radoszewski advocates for the plastics industry and highlights the life-saving properties of plastic products and industry innovation in this Plastics News op-ed. “Our members are funding scientific research, recycling projects and nonprofit organizations cleaning up the environment. If only our most strident critics would channel their passion towards greater cooperation, as many environmental groups already do, we could achieve even greater progress. After the pandemic passes, Americans’ preference for safe, sanitary plastic will endure, and the plastics industry will be there to supply the products they need. And as our country rises again from difficult times, the plastics industry will be as critical to economic growth and job creation as it is to public health.”
