Planet Pod's Podcast
Plastic: The End of the Love Affair? - Planet Pod talks with Laure Cucuron of TerraCycle and Hubbub's Saskia Restorick
Is our long term love affair with plastic finally over? Have we woken up as a country to the damage plastic does to our lives, our homes, our planet and our health ...... or are we still in this toxic love affair with the single use water bottle? In our Valentines episode we talk with Saskia Restorick from Hubbub and Laure Cucuron from TerraCycle about how much progress we have really made to change our ways or are we still dependent on plastic in packaging in shops in the workplace. We discuss the Waitrose £1million plastic bag fund and how you can tackle the scourge of crisp packets - join us and give plastic the "Dear John" treatment!
Code Red for Humanity
We are launching our Autumn podcast series "Climate on Your Doorstep" with an exploration of AR6, the most sobering IPCC report yet, and what it means for the UK's weather. This Sixth Assessment Report is the first major review of the science of climate change since 2013. In the run up to COP26 we spoke to Dr Chris White, Head of the Centre for Water, Environment, Sustainability and Public Health at the University of Strathclyde and Dr Lizzie Kendon of the Met Office about why this report is different, the effect climate change will have on the UK's weather in the near future and what we can do about it.
