Life in plastic, un-fantastic! (ft. Daan Van Kassel)
Economy, planet, markets and you
Drifting in the Central North Pacific Ocean is the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch”, a collection of marine debris with a mass so large it has been ranked as our eighth continent. Nature is “circular by design” – balanced and sustainable – but our modern lifestyle is simply not.
While recycling efforts are increasing, coupled with government policies and regulations, we must consider if ‘recycling’ is rightly positioned as the last stage in the ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ slogan.
In this episode, Kokou Agbo-Bloua examines the circular economy and the plastic lifecycle. He brings in Daan Van Kassel, a fund manager at Circular Debt fund of Polestar Capital, to explore concrete ways to reduce plastic and become one with nature.
