In this talk, Arlene Blum, a scientific advisor for Plastic Pollution Coalition, speaks about the connection between plastic pollution and flame retardants.

Arlene Blum Ph.D., Founder and Executive Director of the Green Science Policy Institute, is a chemist, author, mountaineer and a Visiting Scholar in Chemistry at UC Berkeley. The Institute’s work has contributed to reducing the use of flame retardants and other harmful chemicals in consumer products worldwide. Blum led the first American ascent of Annapurna I – the Great Himalayan Traverse across the mountain regions of Bhutan, Nepal, and India – and hiked the length of the European Alps with her baby daughter on her back. Her current “mountain” is to work with decision makers in business and government to produce and purchase products with safer chemicals for a healthier planet.
