Distillations #89 – Plastic World

One of the things I love about Distillations/CHF is that they celebrate as well as criticize the chemistry that makes our modern world possible.

In this show we take a critical look at plastics, with segments on corn-based plastics that aren’t as eco-friendly as they seem, the dangerous chemicals that can seep into our food from plastic containers, and an interview with a former Dupont chemist who developed the packaging that keeps our meat looking fresh.
