525. Changing Our Plastic Story with Kathryn Nelson

By Commune

We use plastic in almost everything. Plastic in our homes, plastic in our food packaging—there's even plastic in our clothing. But did you know that only 9% of all plastic waste ever produced has been recycled? The rest is poisoning our environment, and it is also poisoning us. In this episode, Kathtryn Nelson, also known as The Plastic-Free Mermaid, shares what we can do to solve this plastic problem so we can take better care of ourselves and our planet.
