Some would call it progress, a monumental step towards environmental awareness and the consequent betterment of humanity. The less plastics production and consumption, the less long-term damage we will be doing to our environment, or at least that’s what we are told.
I love history. I always have. I always will. To me you need to understand where you’ve been in order to get to where you want to go.
SPE turned 70 this year. If you’re affiliated with SPE I’m sure you haven’t missed the 70th anniversary logo. It’s in Plastic Engineering magazines. It’s on our website. It’s on all our correspondence.
If you’ve meet me you know two things about me. One is that sometimes my filter button doesn’t work. I’m going to ask you all sorts of questions that maybe other people wouldn’t. The other is that I love to solve problems. I guess my father is responsible for both of these characteristics in me. He’s the one who taught me that the only way to solve a problem is to ask questions. Give you two guesses what dad did for a living. Yep- he was an engineer.
