Episode notes

Today's episode is another chance to hear from guest Pierre Paslier, from start up NOTPLA. With co-founder Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez, he developed this material, Ooho - at Imperial College London. It's an edible flexible plastic replacement which biodegrades and disappears without harm to the environment in a few weeks, all made from seaweed! And in December 2022, they were awarded the Earthshot Prize.

Find out the reasons behind those names NotPLA & Ooho - Piere’s hopes for the up coming COP26, where mushrooms, shrimp shell and coffee bean waste feature in the future of plastic packaging plus some of his experience behind the scenes at plastic producer L’Oreal.
