Ford thinks it's high time we rethink plastic.

 

 

A paid post in The New York Times entitled "Sowing the Seeds" addresses how manufacturers can create greener plastics with crop byproducts instead of oil. It reads, "Within a year of the oil price spike, Ford’s first eco-hit rolled off production lines: Soy-based foam tucked into the seats of the 2008 Ford Mustang....Today, even though oil prices have temporarily retreated, Ford has stuck with the material. The foam, a blend of conventional and bio-based oils, is now standard across the company’s product line in North America, and will in time appear in international models."
