The Climate Pod

May 4, 2022

This is Part Three of our four-part series, Waves of Change, in collaboration with Oceana. This week, we shift our focus from offshore drilling to the devastating impacts that plastics and plastics production facilities are having on communities around the world. First, we speak with Yvette Arellano, the founder and Executive Director of Fenceline Watch, a Houston-based organization dedicated to the eradication of toxic multigenerational harm on communities living along the fenceline of industry. Then we speak with Oceana's Plastics Campaign Director, Christy Leavitt, about the health impacts of plastics and what Oceana is doing to stop plastic pollution.
