As a new irrevocable proof of human impact on Earth geology, scientists discovered that plastic, has now entered the fossil record.
Some scientists suggests the plastic layers could be used to mark the start of the Anthropocene, Earth's most recent geologic time period defined as being human-impacted.
After the stone, bronze and iron ages, the current period may become known as the plastic age.
Inspired by the discovery of plastiglomerates, stones that contains mixtures of sediments and other natural debris held together by hardened molten plastic, This project imagines what the future mineralogy of earth could look like.
