One Word: “Plastics”
The pace, scale and impact of plastic pollution have exploded. Half of all plastic ever created has come into existence in the past decade. The impacts on ocean life, human health and the entire biosphere are vast and growing. Solutions need to be surfaced, rapidly researched and scaled. Join representatives from three of the world’s leading groups actively engaged in mounting a response equal to the size of the challenge. With: Conrad MacKerron, Senior Vice President of As You Sow; Shilpi Chhotray, Senior Communications Officer for the global #BreakFreeFromPlastic movement. Hosted by: Anna Cummins, co-founder and Global Strategy Director of 5 Gyres.
