50 Surprising Products Made From Oil

50 Surprising Products Made From Oil

With the ongoing oil spill crisis in the Gulf of Mexico being thrust into the national spotlight, I started thinking about how big a role oil really plays in our lives’.

Treehugger compiled a very interesting and surprising list of products that feature petroleum or its byproducts.

After reading through this list, I concluded that I’m absolutely surrounded by petroleum. The experience was certainly eye-opening for me, I had no idea that petroleum literally was seeping into nearly every aspect of our everyday existence. Stretchy jeans, shirts, running shoes, lip gloss — you name it. They all have petroleum! iPods, cell phones and even gum also have petroleum byproducts. The author of the post makes a good point, doesn’t this make you wonder what we ever did without petroleum?

Does knowing all this change your daily routine? Does it make you think twice about the cosmetics and products that you buy?
