CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Plastic and prisons: two of America’s most toxic habits. Happily there are people working to create alternatives. This week on Sea Change Radio we learn about a new type of flexible compostable packaging, developed by Israeli entrepreneur, Daphna Nissenbaum, who hopes this new polymer will take a bite out of the enormous problem of plastic waste. Next, we speak to Zoe Loftus-Farren about her Earth Island Journal piece that exposes the multitude of environmental hazards created by the prison industrial complex and America’s unhealthy addiction to locking people up.
