Are you part of the anti-plastics movement? I'd be surprised if you aren't. The war on plastics is on the hype, and everyone's talking about it, while "null" or "zero" shops are popping up. But how much do we actually know about the impact that different plastics have on our environment, and whether the alternatives we choose are not just as bad? Are straws worse than balloons? Are palm oil soaps better than bottle shampoos? Why are we cherry picking plastics to hate, and producers to blame? In this talk we'll strip the hype and look at the real deal, using science and our brains.
