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? Joining us at the Roundtable is Trevor Thornton, waste management expert at Deakin University; Lucy Hunt, Sustainability Education Manager for the Volvo Ocean Race, which is working with the UN's 'Turn the Tide on Plastic' campaign; Emma Priestland, plastic pollution campaigner for Friends of the Earth; and Sian Sutherland, co-founder of 'A Plastic Planet'. 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.
