Join the Planetary Health Alliance for an inspiring event showcasing innovative and scalable solutions to the big, ugly, planetary health problem of plastic pollution. Author Terry Tempest Williams will frame a discussion of how we move forward in the face of grievous environmental degradation – such as that highlighted in our Feb. 6 Albatross screening – towards actionable solutions to these environmental challenges. Featuring Shaun Frankson, co-founder of The Plastic Bank, and George Serafeim, Associate Professor at Harvard Business School, this discussion will explore The Plastic Bank model of buying plastic waste from individuals, recycling it, and reselling it at a premium to corporations for social and environmental impact.
Reception to follow.
