The Litter Myth - Throughline

From NPR and Throughline podcast, The past is never past. Every headline has a history. Join us every week as we go back in time to understand the present. These are stories you can feel and sounds you can see from the moments that shaped our world.  There is more waste in the world today than at any time in history, and the responsibility for keeping the environment clean too often falls on individuals instead of manufacturers. But, why us? And why this feeling of responsibility? This week, how one organization changed the American public's relationship with waste and who is ultimately responsible for it.  

To find our way out of plastic pollution it is key to understand where it all began.  It is simple to complain, but upset, and frustrated in finding solutions for the future, yet without understanding our history we may set ourselves up to repeat history.  This podcast provides a brilliant perspective and understanding of what happened to land us to where we stand today with pollution and littering.
