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!
