The only way we can reduce ocean plastic is by making sure it never ends up in the ocean in the first place. And that's only possible if we add value to it.

We met David at the Empack trade fair in Stockholm, where the packaging and logistics industry get together. Podcast host: Christian von Essen // Learn more at: http://www.hejaframtiden.se
