Many products made from a base of petroleum can easily be made from renewable plant based materials, it's just cheaper and easier using petroleum within the existing infrastructure.

Henry Ford experimented with plant derived plastics in the 20s and 30s and by 1941 exhibited a prototype car made using a substantial amount of soybean and hemp derived plastic components.
