Is the water in your water bottle or is the bottle in your water?
How much plastic have you eaten today?
Plastic is not just in the Oceans anymore but in our food. The talk talks about plastic in things we eat, drink and breathe. The speaker takes you though his personal journey of discovering this danger, shows how everyone can find this for themselves and suggests things everyone can do to prevent plastic ending up in our diet.

We can stop this! We have to stop this! For the sake of our world, for the sake of us.
