Plastic Soup: Purge the Plastic Scourge

We've seen the reports and news headlines: "Our planet is choking on plastic" "Microplastics: Polluting our blood, foetuses - and now the dairy and meat we eat." Along with the climate and biodiversity loss crises, pollution - including air and plastic pollution -  is the third part of the Triple Planetary Crisis. How can we be part of the solution to end plastic pollution? In conjunction with #PlasticFreeJuly, we discuss this and more on this month's episode of Plastic Soup - an ongoing series where we ask whether we are indeed living in a giant bowl of plastic soup, and explore ways we can get out of this goop. Helping us today is Hema Mahadevan, a Public Engagement Campaigner at Greenpeace Malaysia, who will also share her views on the Global Plastics Treaty, and Malaysia's Plastics Sustainability Roadmap.
