Plastic can be an incredibly useful compound when used right. When plastic is not recycled like it can be, it only harms more than it helps. And it is a shame because plastic has created alternatives to products that were once originally made with aluminum, steel and glass.

Let us put it this way. You have 2 pounds of plastic, 3 pounds of aluminum, 8 pounds of steel and 40 pounds of glass. You need to fill 1,300 ounces worth of drinks. Which is going to get the job done at a better price? If you guessed “plastic,” then you are correct! But why? Each material can carry the 1,300 ounces needed, but plastic does is better by being do durable.

If you take a plastic bottle, you will notice that it is not very thick. In fact, plastic can be very strong with such thin walls. Aluminum, steel and glass can all cut, and glass can even shatter into a dangerous pile of shards. So, you can see why plastic would be chosen over the other three.
