People Over Plastic (POP) is a BIPOC Storytelling Collective committed to dismantling systems of oppression connected to the most controversial material on the planet: PLASTIC. With 99% of plastic coming from fossil fuels today, POP believes conversations about the climate crisis AND the plastic crisis must center people of color and indigenous voices who are most impacted. In POP’s podcast, Shilpi Chhodray, long-time communications leader in the #BreakFreeFromPlastic movement, brings listeners stories from inspiring individuals who challenge the unjust social, political and economic systems that are connected to the plastic pollution crisis.
