Plastic seems to be everywhere. In this podcast, Naturally Speaking’s Dr Keila Meginnis, Dr Lucy Gilbert, and Eleni Christoforou, joined by Institute researcher Rachel Francoeur, meet to discuss and explore different areas of research around plastics. The unfortunate truth is that plastic is having effects in almost every ecosystem on our planet. Tune in to this round table discussion for a chat about some of the Institute’s research around plastic, experiences of trying to go plastic free and to hear about things YOU can do to reduce your own plastic use.
