David Katz is the founder of Plastic Bank, which is helping to make plastic waste a currency that transcends poverty while stopping the flow of plastic into our oceans.

On this podcast episode, David sheds light on what sugar has to do with plastic pollution; why we need to address the fact that this global crisis is intricately linked to poverty; the importance of coming up with ways that keep plastics out of our oceans to begin with (e.g., turning off the tap) rather than focusing on retroactive cleanups (e.g., mopping the floor while it's still being flooded); and more.
