On this edition of Your Call, scientist and environmental activist Marcus Eriksen discusses his book Junk Raft, his voyages exploring the impact of plastic on our oceans, and his vision of a world free of plastic.



The Sonoma Compost Company is just off Highway 101, northwest of Petaluma. All day, trucks haul in plant materials; others haul out soil. Sift through that soil, and you might find remnants of chicken feathers (apparently great for vegetable growers), rice hulls (nice for clay soils), and more.
