Plastover: An Exodus From Plastic Waste

Hosted By: Reboot

Join us for “Plastover” on the journey to a more sane, responsible use of plastic by committing to “Let My Plastic Go!”

Every Passover, Jews around the world give up leavened bread – hametz. It’s a sacrifice we make willingly, to recall our ancestors’ journey from slavery to freedom. But what if we could make another kind of sacrifice – one that would have an immediate impact on the world? What if we chose to mindfully free ourselves from the plague of plastic waste?

Join writer Jonathan Bines, social change consultant Jessy Tolkan and Plastic Pollution Coalition CEO and Co-Founder Dianna Cohen for a conversation that leverages Passover’s power of symbology and transformation to use plastic to spark a sustained climate intervention. An Exodus of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
