Plastic Soup: Zero Waste Malaysia's “Trashpedia”

In this new segment on Earth Matters - Plastic Soup - we ask whether we are indeed living in a giant bowl of plastic soup, and explore ways we can get out of this goop. The underlying cause of the plastic pollution crisis is said to be rooted in unsustainable levels of both production and consumption of plastic. Today, we want to tackle plastic consumption in particular, and how we can all start to think about reducing our personal use of plastic goods. Joining us to do that are Zero Waste Malaysia's Khor Sue Yee (Co-founder and Director) and Jasreel Lim (Head of Finance & Business Development), who will also share more about their new Trashpedia, which is dubbed the ultimate guide to waste segregation and sustainable living, and they will also touch briefly on Malaysia's Plastics Sustainability Roadmap 2021 - 2030.
