Take a quick moment and, wherever you are, look around you. I would be willing to bet that you see some sort of plastic nearby. Today we had the pleasure of speaking with Tony Deligio, content director with Plastics Today, an online publication focused on everything plastic. With an online reach of over 50,000 unique visitors per month, and combined trade events such as PLASTEC, PLAST-EX and Expoplast, it is easy to see how Plastics Today is a leading network for the plastics community.
