Synopsis:

DEMYSTIFYING PLASTICS
 

Tune in to learn about the definite connection between climate change and plastics. We are approaching the point when plastics will create more emissions than coal. Plastics are not as necessary as the industry manipulates us into thinking they are. There are new sustainable non-fossil-fuel plastics alternatives. There are even experiments being done to make “wood” from food scraps. The supply chain of plastic pollutes from creation to waste. It is not a life cycle – it's a death cycle. 

Our guest is Alexis Goldsmith, Beyond Plastics' National Organizing Director. “We all think we are doing a good thing recycling our plastic, but the reality right now”, as Alexis shares, “is that most plastics cannot be recycled”. “We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly; we need millions of people doing zero waste imperfectly.” - Anne Marie Bonneau from her blog Mother Earth Living
