During this episode we took a deep dive on how his sustainable journey started, Looking at the Great pacific garbage patch. We also talked about the importance of organisation and consumers in the current plastic waste problem as well as looked at some of their wonderful initiatives they have started from an app all the way through to their Plastic Disclosure Projects.
