Stiv was in the middle of the ocean, hundreds of miles from land, when he decided to quit his job to devote himself to putting a stop to plastic pollution.
In Episode 18 of The Good Stuff, Annie sits down with Stiv Wilson from 5 Gyres and takes a close look at plastic pollution in our oceans, lakes, and rivers. Annie wraps this episode with a call from Story of Stuff staffer Allison Cook — from the middle of the North Atlantic! Allison joined Stiv on a research expedition to witness the firsthand impacts of our throw-away culture.
Sit back and listen: it’s The Good Stuff.
