What We Waste - Hint: Lots

Von Hernandez, Global Coordinator, Break Free from Plastic

What We Waste - Hint: Lots

 A new landmark global report titled "What We Waste" takes an in-depth look at how single use plastic, metal and glass beverage packaging is being wasted at ever-increasing rates around the world. It is a story which is particularly concerning in countries with inadequate waste management systems, but there are countries who are leading the way, showing the world that there are circular economy models for managing reusable and recyclable resources. We explore the findings of this new report with Von Hernandez, the Global Coordinator of the Break Free from Plastic movement, and discuss the global direction needed, to reverse the plastic pollution crisis and avert catastrophic climate change.
