Join us for an enlightening and hopeful conversation with Daphna Nissenbaum, CEO of TIPA. Based in Israel, TIPA produces fully compostable flexible packaging—food grade and non-food grade bags and pouches—which make up the bulk of single-use, non-recyclable plastics.

Unlike conventional plastic that lasts for hundreds and possibly thousands of years, compostable plastics break down to create compost—fertilizer for the soil. Plastic pollution is a scourge that threatens our very existence on the planet. With 8.3 billion tons of plastic produced over the last 30 or 40 years and nearly 300 million tons produced annually, plastics are devastating the oceans, our food supply and our health.

Tune in to learn what you can do to help stem the tide of the plastics plague and visit the show notes page to sign the Sustainability Now Compostable Plastics Pledge to help us in shaping a world that works!
