Only 5% of plastic can be recycled so that means 95% is being dumped into our oceans, landfills and bodies at an unremitting pace.  To help us understand the scale of the problem and see what steps California and other countries are already taking with the Global Plastics Treaty we will speak to John Hocevar, Greenpeace’s Oceans Campaign Director, Veronique Greenwood, a science journalist and essayist who frequently contributes to the New York Times and National Geographic and Dr. Roberto Lucchini is Professor of Environmental Health Sciences at Florida International University.
