Dianna Cohen: Tough truths about plastic pollution

While a glass bottle can be a glass bottle again or can be used again, a plastic bottle can never be a plastic bottle again.” (Dianna Cohen)

Artist Dianna Cohen shares some tough truths about plastic pollution in the ocean and in our lives — and some thoughts on how to free ourselves from the plastic gyre.

Dianna Cohen co-founded the Plastic Pollution Coalition, which is working to help end our cycle of plastics use.
