In the beginning of 2014 I decided to get out in the open with my activities related to trash on the streets, which is one of the things that creates plastic soup in our oceans. I felt like coming out of the closet, but now I’m happy I did it because it makes a difference showing what I do and talking about why I do it. I’m a chemical engineer living in the Netherlands. I am in charge of the crash course Plastics: The Basics. I write about what plastic is, where it comes from, what the difference between a plastic bottle and plastic wrap is, and what to think of chemical additives such as BPA.
