It's a plastic eat plastic world

In this episode we talk a lot about plastic. Nick shares that recycling is kind of a sham and Allie shares some news about microplastics being found in snow in remote areas and a new report by the World Health Organization that basically says we know nothing. Allie also shares a new research article about ship strikes causing whale deaths.

Boats, boats, boats and Monsanto

A teenager is smarter than us

In this episode we share that a new country now tops the charts for the most deaths of environment defenders, corals might like sea level rise over the short term, a teenager won a bunch of money for a new process that could help clear our water of micro-plastics (also see here), and The Skimmer by OCTO is out for this month.
