OnePlanet: Plastic Waste and the Begging Robot June 10, 2011

from One Planet· · 2 listeners

Plastic has revolutionised our lives, but it is also choking the natural world. This week One Planet visits an exhibition on plastics at London's Science Museum, and talks to eco-adventurer David de Rothschild, who sailed across the Pacific in a boat made of plastic bottles to highlight rubbish at sea. Also on the show we look at two of the innovative ways charities are trying to part us from our cash, and take in the view from the tallest building in Accra, Ghana.
