Found at SD.
Baylor University researchers have found how to use the most aboundant coconut fibre (normally a wasted byproduct of coconut production) to make polyester-like fibres, with the specific intention of using them in automobiles' interiors.
Obviously this developement still awaits implementation (like so many other technological discoveries it may take decades before it's widespread) but it's certainly cheaper and more eco-friendly than the typical plastic parts. It also fits safety standards for such products.
Let them come. We use too much plastic.
