An action packed double-digit episode!
We met some of our listeners at our first community event who were kind enough to share some of their thoughts. Our thanks to Joy, Nathalia & Sandy for those.
The Two Vegans talk about the rising awareness around plastic—in particular, various companies who’ve taken the initiative in Dubai and around the world to remove the use of single-use plastic in their operations.
And we have a special guest from the European Union’s Sustainable Climate Unit. Jody Quirke shares some (scary!) statistics on the real plastic problem, and what the EU’s ambitious plastic strategy contains.
