Can we save the planet and still keep our stuff?

From cheap tops to takeaway spoons, the dilemmas are unavoidable.

The online fast fashion retailer Boohoo has revealed a 48% rise in their revenues, a sign that our appetite for cheap stuff is as big as ever. Meanwhile climate change activists Extinction Rebellion are preparing to march through the heart of London’s City protesting against what they call a ‘toxic financial system’ that’s built on greed. So just how much does consumer culture impact the environment and what can we do about it? We speak to podcaster and comedian Stevie Martin and BBC correspondent Justin Rowlatt. You can see Stevie’s show ‘Hot Content’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Underbelly, Bristo Square.
