Listen Download | podcast

Disposable, single use plastic has become an environmental and public health hazard. Plastic creates toxic pollution at just about every stage of its existence, from manufacture, to use, to disposal. Here’s the good news. We can move beyond our addiction to plastic. Tune in to hear Pam Marcus, an entrepreneurial coach and one of the organizers of Berkeley’s Think Beyond Plastics competition. On the phone from San Rafael we have Paul Tasner whose new company, Pulp Works, won the most innovative business award for creating packaging made from waste paper, and we also have Joseph Blane, a co-founder and partner, of In.Gredients, a plastic free grocery store in Austin, Texas that won most promising emerging business.
