Plastic Bans

If we get rid of plastic it will solve all of our pollution problems - right? Maybe not. If you consider the material resource, the energy used to make it and the greenhouse gas emissions - are paper and cotton bags just as bad, or even worse, than plastic? Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World.
