Indiana's Brightmark Changing The Game For Ocean Plastic


A longstanding problem, ocean plastic has become severe in recent years, with some studies predicting there will actually be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050. Thankfully, there's at least one company that is working to make sure that doesn't happen.

In its first full year of operation, Ashley, Indiana's Brightmark is on track to process 100,000 tons of plastic: from grocery bags to coffee cups, if it's plastic, they want it. They convert it to wax and eco-friendly fuel with a commercial process that could revolutionize the industry--and might solve one of our most vexing environmental issues.
