Show Notes

Life in plastic...is obviously not fantastic. And yet we can't seem to live without it.
In this episode we talk to Garance Boullenger, Project Manager Plastics Initiative at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, about the complexities that are behind our obsession with plastic.

  • Why is plastic being "demonized" in the first place?
  • How helpful is recycling?
  • What can be done to minimize plastic pollution?
  • How is plastic related to climate change?
  • And why are the alternatives sometimes worse than the original?

Garance's fact-based approach provides us with eye-opening insight on what is probably the most controversial material out there.
