What’s the deal with plastic pollution and how can we further prevent our oceans from further becoming plastic soup? We now know the impact of our dependence on plastic has impacts to both marine life and human health and will be unravelling some of the mysteries, questions and innovative solutions of addressing plastic in the ocean in a three part mini-series.

In Part 1 of our plastic ocean miniseries, we will focus on just one aspect of plastic pollution: SUPs. Not Stand Up Paddleboards… we mean Single-Use Plastics! The act of using a product once and throwing it away is occurring so rapidly around the world that some even say we are experiencing a ‘Plastic Pandemic’.

So, what are we going to do about it? Hang tight as we are about to hear the story of how the Town of Lunenberg shifted away from plastics and how YOU can too! In this episode, we are joined by two women – Jennifer and Ariel – who prove that changing our individual habits and status-quo in business DO make a difference.
