Petroleum is a limited natural resource that leaves a huge carbon footprint when manufactured into plastic and it's products.  Making plastic requires many chemical additives that result in dangerous compounds, like PBDE flame retardants or BPAs in food packaging, that accumulate in our bodies and the environment.  And plastics like polyurethane couch foam stick around forever in our landfills!  Is the long term cost really worth the current convenience?


PBDEs are not chemically bound to plastics, foam, fabrics, or other products in which they are used, making them more likely to leach out of these products. Despite the United States having phased out the manufacture and import of penta- and octaBDE in 2004, their component congeners are being detected in humans and the environment. Some reports indicate that levels are increasing. One potential source is imported articles to which these compounds have been added. Another is the possible breakdown of decaBDE in the environment to more toxic and bioaccumulative PBDE congeners.” (Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) Action Plan Summary.  EPA.gov, 2015.  Web 26 June, 2015)

Flame retardants in furniture foam are now optional thanks to TB117-2013.  HBO FIlms has an excellent documentary called 'The Toxic Hot Seat',


Oil reserves:  Total world proved oil reserves reached 1700.1 billion barrels at the end of 2014 sufficient to meet 52.5 years of global production

Global oil reserves declined by 0.92 billion barrels in 2014 to 1,700.1 billion barrels. Globally, that represents an increase of 24% over the 2004 figure, despite cumulative production of 336 billion barrels during the past ten years. Global reserves are roughly 330 billion barrels higher than a decade ago.” (Statistical Review of World Energy 2015.  BP.com, 2015  Web.  26 June 2015)
