    Looks like they are moving away from oil for the more sustainable sugarcane, which is good! Helps save oil, and the bricks shouldn't be any different.

    I was always under the impression that plastics are developed from oil processing byproducts, and won't have any real impact on the quantity of oil we consume unless it's use as fuel is reduced.

    If true, what happens to the byproducts then? Just gets cheaper?
