David Katz – Social Plastic
I’m one of those people who recycles as much as humanly possible, but I know that garbage, especially plastic, is a huge problem in just about every country. However, it is extraordinary in many countries that do not have access to the infrastructure that we have in the US.
David Katz introduces the idea of The Plastic Bank and Social Plastic in this TED Talk. As he mentions, when you are struggling for food and shelter, recycling doesn’t rate high on the priority list… but this idea has merit for creating income and recycling infrastructures that reduces new plastic creation.
Enjoy and share!
