63 - Lorren de Kock: A world of plastic

November 19th 2019

This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Industrial engineer turned WWF plastics consultant Lorren de Kock. In her mid 30’s Lorren realised she needed a change in a career path and needed to do something that made a difference so she went back to University part time while still working and raising a family.

Now Lorren heads up the Plastics team at WWF where she works with the various stakeholders in the industry to find solutions to the problems we face.

We discussed many aspects of the plastic problem from bioplastics and why they are not a solution for us here in South Africa yet to the plastics system and industry as a whole and the shift towards a circular economy. I left far more educated as to where we stand and what the issues are that we face as well as more questions about how we move forward and start solving the problem. If you want to know more about our plastic system and issues you must listen to this podcast.
