Plastic Challenge: Ellen Simpson, Week 12

I have dissected the cartons that my Haagen-Dazs ice cream comes in, and I don’t think there is any plastic in the material of the carton itself (disregarding the lid and the plastic seal inside). I have ripped the cardboard, and all I see is separating paper fibers, no pulling/stretching of plastic. I know people […]
