Adam Feinberg had no sooner made a bright yellow thin sheet of plastic than he had to shred it into little pieces. He chose an “I"-shaped mold for the logo of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he is a chemist. Then, he filled it with the plastic bits and stuck it in a hot oven.
"A Plastic Designed to Die" is from the August 06, 2018 US section of The New York Times. It was written by Xiaozhi Lim and narrated by Kristi Burns.
