    Ep.6. David Katz, CEO & Founder of Plastic Bank. Changing the Story of Plastic

    On the podcast this week, I am thrilled to welcome David Katz, CEO and Founder of Plastic Bank - a company who's seeking to redefine the value of plastic, in order to help combat the world's growing plastic crisis and empower plastic collectors in the poorest parts of the world.
    David is a truly inspirational character and I was thrilled to have him talk to us on a whole range of topics. I would encourage all of our listenership to get involved with Plastic Bank's mission by visiting https://plasticbank.com/go-plastic-neutral-3/ and offsetting their plastic consumption.
