Plastic Free July: How Knowing The Full Story Of Plastic Can Help You End It

Episode 32

Learn how knowing the full story of plastic can help you end it. Joining us this week is Stiv Wilson, award-winning filmmaker, co-creator of Peak Plastic Foundation, and educator working at the nexus of marine conservation, plastic pollution, and human rights. Stiv talks about passing the first plastics-focused national policy in the USA in 2015, sailing 35,000 nautical miles around the world to study marine plastic pollution, and his powerful documentary "The Story of Plastic." And thanks to Angela Sun (@sunnyangela) for sending in a great tip for going plastic free! If you'd like to send one in, please email the audio file with your #plasticfreejuly tip.
