Kicking the plastic habit
When you throw something away, where is ‘away’? From straws and takeaway forks to coffee cups and cling film, around 40% of the plastics we use are single-use and a mammoth 91% of all plastic isn’t recycled. It’s no wonder the world is choking on it. Alarmed by the scale of the problem, Laura Young decided to kick her plastic habit and work towards a zero-waste lifestyle. In this entertaining talk, she shares how she went from plastic abuser to conscious consumer.
