Lessons From a Pandemic


In this episode… we’ll traverse from Hong Kong to South Korea and onto Pune, India. We start with Hong Kong, where Sustainable Asia is based, because no new legislation on plastic waste has been introduced for over a decade. Then we peak through the curtain of the COVID pandemic to see how South Korea is reacting to their recent surge in plastic waste. Finally we turn to Pune, India where under appreciated workers form the backbone of their unregulated recycling systems.

This new 5-episode season is based on The Asia Plastic Atlas from the Heinrich Boell Foundation with support from Break Free From Plastic Asia Pacific.
