Humans are exceptionally thorough in making sure our plastic waste fills every corner of the earth and simultaneously they’re shockingly effective in allowing methane gas to burn away the ozone layer. Methane, is a greenhouse gas emitted from industry, agriculture, and waste management activities, such as wastewater treatment plants. Molly Morse, Anne Schauer-Gimenez and Allison Pieja, founders of Mango Materials, have found a way to tackle both our plastics and methane problem.
