Plastic: the all encompassing material that facilitates our modern world. From how we keep our teeth clean, to how we get to work; plastic is involved in more then one step of the process. As ubiquitous as it is harmful, plastic has taken on its own tragic love story with our planet Earth. How did we find ourselves caught in this total dependence on such a strange material? On the show to discuss our abusive relationship with “sweet lady plastic” is Susan Freinkel, author of Plastic: A Toxic Love Story.
