The Plastic Problem

What's the relationship between environmental justice and plastic? You didn't know there was one? Van Jones will explain. "People got very upset when the BP oil spill happened for very good reasons," he says. "But oil and petrochemicals are not just a problem when they're spilled, they're a problem when they're not spilled."
