Comparing Environmental Fads to Environmental Facts| SHE-ensya Lecture Series (Environment)

Hello Science Fans!

Here at SHE-ensya, we believe in the continuous pursuit to debunk science myths and “alternative facts”. So in this video, we look at some environmental trends and try to assess their integrity and the facts behind them.

In this video, we use verified publications and scientific information to check if paper bags are really better alternatives to plastic bags — specially considering how many cities have started banning the use of sand bags in markets. We also look at the science behind the use of metal straws. Are they truly the more environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic straws? How many times should we use them before buying them becomes worth it? And finally, we evaluate the carbon footprint and health impacts of going vegetarian. Will a plant-based diet really be better for the planet — and for your health — given current agricultural processes?

So if you want to identify environmental facts from fiction, please take the time to watch this video!

Thank you so much for dropping by!
