Paper beats plastic? How to rethink environmental folklore

Year of production: 2013

The video gives a good overview of lifecycle thinking, which is an important aspect of thinking critically about the environmental impact of products. Although recorded back in 2013, the general principles still apply on how not all of the environmental aspects of our possessions are visible and how we need to take the production, use and disposal elements of a product’s lifecycle into account. This video can be used for educational purposes when discussing environmental impact or simply as a resource for developing your own critical thinking on environmental solutions.
