    I have been asking this question myself. I am looking forward to any question that might come in on this subject.

    Plastic has become so common around us and it is so versatile that I really wonder what we would do without plastic. Maybe scientists will be able to produce synthetic materials without the use of fossil fuels and similar characteristics as plastic.

    I hope someone more versed in chemistry than I am will be able to answer.

    I think that future technology will come up with some cellulose based equivalents, silicon based equivalents and some mineral based equivalents.  I.e., wood, glass, metal.
