Today on Your Call: What is the true cost of plastic packaging?
On today's Your Call, we’ll rebroadcast a conversation we had with Annie Leonard, of The Story of Stuff, about what corporate responsibility should look like for the plastics and packaging industry. Given the overwhelming amount of plastics that end up in the environment, what responsibility do the manufacturers of disposable plastic and packaging products have for limiting and cleaning up this waste? Do we need more legislation to hold corporations responsible? And who's really making the decisions in this industry? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar.
