Sunday Journal – Towns Weighing Single-Use Plastic Bans with Madhavi Venkatesan

Nonprofit Sustainable Practices led the articles, and Executive Director and Economist Madhavi Venkatesan joins Sunday Journal this week to discuss exactly what the bans would mean for residents, and how they factor into a warming climate and the long-term health impacts of plastics.
