Webinar: Author Julia Hailes on plastic problems and solutions
Julia Hailes, author of The Green Consumer Guide, shares her thoughts about plastics and the current conversation around them. The challenge we face today is not simply about turning off the plastic tap. Humans need to use their ingenuity to come up with solutions that dramatically reduce waste of all types, stop it from getting into the ocean and take account of wider environmental issues like climate change.
JULIA TALKS ABOUT:
- The Blue Planet Effect acted as a catalyst for public concern over plastics, but some of the proposed solutions may be absurd.
- Plastics are not the key problem; it’s how we use them.
- Stopping plastics getting into the sea is a huge challenge: 70% of plastics in the oceans comes from places with no waste management.
