The Chevrolet Volt Has A New Source For Plastic

Talk about a case of revenge for the electric car. Todd Woody filed a Reuters report yesterday that outlined a plan GM has put in motion to recapture some of the oil-contaminated plastics lingering in the Gulf. According to the story, GM will have enough plastic to supply parts for a year’s worth of Chevy Volts.  That’s the kind of scale around a reuse strategy that needs to be publicized. It also makes the absence of a reuse mentality in our personal lives seem almost absurd.
