WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT ZERO PLASTIC. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC? OR WAY TOO DRASTIC?
We used to love plastic. Our devotion to it saw global production double in the last 20 years. But thanks to oceans of litter, the tide of public opinion seems to be turning – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is waging war against it, Morrison’s veg aisles are going plastic-free and straws are paper again. But are our actions at home having an impact globally? What about the micro-plastics already in our food chain? Are the alternatives really more sustainable? And can we honestly expect the food in our fridge to be just as good and safe to eat?Join Thrift food guru Simon Preston and guest panellists for a provocative and enlightening discussion that will peel off the opaque film of clickbait headlines and explore the environmental choices facing us all. Speakers are Dr Duika Burges Watson – Food Policy specialist and Hallam Wheatley, Research Chemist, at SABIC UK Petrochemicals.
