Kicking The Plastic Habit

Single-use plastics are an environmental nightmare, so what is industry doing about it?

Single-use plastics are an environmental nightmare, so what is industry doing about it? We hear from global consumer goods giant Unilever, who say all their
plastic packaging will be fully reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. And what can consumers do to reduce their plastic use? We meet Ingrid Caldironi of zero waste 'Bulk Market' in London where shoppers can get their groceries packaging free.

And finally, the world's main stock markets keep going up, but how long can it last? We hear from Bill McNabb, CEO of Vanguard, one of the world's largest investment funds.
