"There is no future to plastic other than to pollute"



In this week's comments update, readers are debating CEO of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Andrew Morlet's statement that plastic can be used sustainably.
Plastic fantastic: a panel discussion at Dezeen Day saw designer Richard Hutten respond angrily to claims by Andrew Morlet, CEO of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, that plastic can be used sustainably, sparking reader debate.
"Plastic can only be recycled very few times," said Yoem. "There is no future to plastic other than to pollute."
Karol B went on: "Burning or any recycling consumes more and more energy. Generally the problem is with the paradigm of our growth economy ? growth is measured by over production and over consumption."
Paul B was intrigued by Morlet's comments: "It's not the first time I've heard people say that technology of the future will solve these problems and clean up the planet. If technology of the future will solve it all, then by how much do we need to alter our behaviour today"" "Medicine has made great strides in preventing, treating and sometimes curing cancer. Quitting is not a path to success," said Speed in response to Hutten calling plastic "the cancer of our planet".
For one reader, Hutten's response felt unfair:

Is plastic the cancer of our planet" Join the discussion ?
