Episode Summary

Petroleum plastics are destroying the planet. They use up energy, take hundreds of years to decompose, and the 12 million tonnes of it that end up in the ocean every year are doing unthinkable damage to wildlife. We must end our dependence on oil-based plastics, and Floreon is one company helping us do just that. Floreon has created an organic compound which turns PLA into "the world's most versatile bioplastic". Could Floreon-infused PLA finally put an end to oil-based plastics? CEO Shaun Chatterton explains how Floreon works, the company’s journey, and what’s next for the world’s plastic consumption. Questions & comments?
