Plastic is plastic, right? So why is it so hard to recycle it? What do the numbers 1-7 mean? Why is plastic in the ocean? What would happen if we banned all plastic packaging? Why can’t I put all plastic in my blue bin? Why is food security linked to plastic packaging? I've tried to remove plastic packaging from my life, but it's hard. I feel guilty, but don't know what to do … so I'm angry at the companies who put me in this position. Who are the companies and what are they doing?
Terry Grill, Director, Sustainability – Americas at Sealed Air Corporation, a founding director of Sustainable Claremont, and a board member of the Catalina Island Conservancy, discusses this complex problem and possible solutions. She is joined for Q&A by Kristin Mikula, Community Services Manager for the City of Claremont.
