Can you live without chemicals?

ICIS Chemical Business (Disclosure: I work for ICIS) published today an article about one of my colleagues, Andy Brice, trying to live for a week without polypropylene plastics.

This challenge came about during a “going cold turkey” discussion in the chemical community forum ICIS Connect. No matter how the chemical industry is continuously being targeted by public advocates, nobody in their right (and even bended) minds could say that they can do without chemicals in their lives.

Check out how Andy survived for the week.

Also featured in this May 19 issue of ICB is John Richardson’s article about China’s environment protection problems, and Philippa Jones’ article about Chinese ethics and politics.

Our thoughts and prayers go to the victims of the recent earthquake in China and the disaster in Myanmar.
