Did you know that Plastic was first originally invented to save the lives of animals? The game billiards which is more commonly known now as “Pool” or “Snooker” got hugely popular in the late 18th century and the ivory used to make the balls decimated the elephant population.
In the early 19th century a New York Firm offered a reward of $10,000 (equivalent to around $260,000 today) to anyone who could come up with a synthetic version of the Ivory Balls to stop the slaughter of these animals. In 1907 a Chemist called Leo Hendrik Baekeland came up with the first ever 100% synthetic version of Plastic to which could be used as a substitute for the Ivory balls.
