Innovations to replace plastic

Now that plastic can be recycled, reused or retransformed, we can dream of an exit from this plastic crisis. As positive as it is to be able to correct our past mistakes by recovering waste and transforming it into new products, it is imperative to find solutions to curb the creation of plastic-based products in the first place.

Is it possible to live without plastic, a material unfortunately so useful in our daily lives?
