How the plastic industry turned the pandemic to its advantage
Corporations along the plastics value chain have faced a number of environmental and health crises, from toxic scandals to marine plastic waste and the climate emergency. In the two years leading up to the pandemic, the public backlash against plastic was a major concern for industry leaders.
However, the pandemic highlights the importance of plastic products for healthcare and hygiene. This temporary respite from public anti-plastic sentiment opened the door for industry to push back against single-use plastics bans.
During the pandemic, plastic was restored to its original paradoxical status as both a miracle and a menace for society. By the end of 2020, industry leaders had fully embraced the new pandemic narrative about the essential role of plastics in society and many expressed optimism about their future growth.
As one petrochemical industry executive enthused: "The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted how essential our products are. We saw record sales and record volumes for our products throughout the pandemic… over the long term we can continue to see that kind of growth."
The Changing Markets Foundation's report Talking Trash concluded that "the Covid-19 health crisis has, once again, shown that Big Plastic is always primed and ready to co-opt a crisis to its advantage, pushing to undermine environmental legislation or any restrictions on its products… The plastics industry is making cold calculations to carry on with business as usual."
We need legislation and binding regulations to address the plastics crisis.
