Reimagine Plastic - NPR


"In this episode, we go inside a company based in North Carolina that’s making a sustainable polyester fiber out of water bottles to cut down on plastic pollution.  Imagine a world where most plastic gets recycled and then it’s used—and reused—in multiple ways. In this episode, we go inside a company based in North Carolina called Unifi that’s making a sustainable polyester fiber out of water bottles to cut down on plastic pollution. We’ll also hear from a BofA Global Research Analyst, Sameer Chopra, on what he thinks is crucial for plastic innovation as we prepare for the future. “I think we need to reimagine and come up with new products where plastic can be consumed and often used as a substitute. Can we make large consumer products or houses that use recycled plastic?” You’ll hear his question and more as our featured guests share what they’re dreaming for a future based on a circular economy."
