Interview with Laura Markley about plastic waste in personal care

In this episode, I spoke with Laura Markley, PhD student studying the impacts of plastics on the environment and human health, as well as founder of Waste-Free PhD. With ‘Plastic Free July’ upon us, I thought a conversation with her would be timely. In our conversation, we talked about her research on microplastics and estrogenic compounds released from plastics, how this all relates to your cosmetic products, sustainability in cosmetics, suggestions for brands and consumers to do things better, misinformation, and so much more.
