Currently, the equivalent of one garbage truck full of plastic enters the oceans every single minute of every day. So until we cut out this plastic habit completely, we need to find a way to put it to use and stop it harming wildlife and ecosystems. In this episode, we look to the circular economy model once more for a solution and I interview Toby McCartney, the founder of MacRebur, a Scottish based company that takes waste plastic that would otherwise be destined for landfill (or more likely the ocean) and use it to build roads. We chat about where the idea came from, the difficulty of getting from idea to product, the importance of local circular economy thinking and finally the plan to scale and tackle the plastic problem around the world.
