Our single-use items aren't helping the fight against climate change but there are easy hacks to reduce and reuse. Climate Lab is produced by the University of California in partnership with Vox. Hosted by conservation scientist Dr. M. Sanjayan, the videos explore the surprising elements of our lives that contribute to climate change and the groundbreaking work being done to fight back. Featuring conversations with experts, scientists, thought leaders and activists, the series demystifies topics like nuclear power, food waste and online shopping to make them more approachable and actionable for those who want to do their part. Sanjayan is an alum of UC Santa Cruz, a Visiting Researcher at UCLA and the CEO of Conservation International.

Timothy Liwanag : I agree wholeheartedly with 99% of this video. The 1% I don’t agree with is dude putting ketchup on his potato chips at 2:03 #isthisathing

Virginia G : Pleaseeeee do one on amazon packaging !!! Drives me crazy I’ll get four boxes for one thing!!!

Muskaan Sengupta : Finally, something important, something we should care about, *FINALLY* makes it to trending.

Riswan AP : So Big Shaq's "no ketchup" principle is actually very eco-friendly

CodeDive : If you order on UberEats, please write extra instructions for "no utensils."

Pixel : I'm mostly learning that the US is facing some problems that are already tackled or being tackled in Europe.

Coolp1000 : Save the Earth

murrrmur : Alright, the comments are funny, but finish the god dam video before you claim he was asking you to put a tuna sandwich into your back pocket.

einfach nur Leo : In Germany you have to pay a small amount for plastic bags in supermarkets. That makes people reuse or bring their own bags.


Kailei Paige : When I go out to eat I bring a reusable container for my leftovers. I also have a pencil box where I keep utensils for ordering takeout or eating at work!

Lul M8 : 2:32 Ive worked in retail before and trust me some customers would act like you tried to kill them if you didnt give them a bag... i can already hear the Up-itty voice “AND A BAG?!” “Ummm.... Are you serious?!” “This is unbelievable” “You expect me to hold and carry my burrito?!” “Can i speak to your manager?” And of course the people who just stand there still, and stare at you.

Colleen : I'm totally on board. Vox you are my favorite channel you broaden my horizons and constantly change the way I see things. I'm so glad you exist that tears escape my eyes. THANK YOU VOX AND HAVE A GREAT 2018

pinguaina : maybe the big corporations should take some responsibility

Benjamin Browning : does this guy order take out for every meal?

Jasmine Doyle : Why does this not have more view? It's so important!!!

Sizzling Slot Jackpots : I feel the same way when I order out. I try to reuse plastic containers or recycle them properly. THANK YOU everyone who SUBSCRIBED to my channel - appreciate the support...

T T : My university in Germany had single use coffee cups but they banned them. Reusable cups can be purchased there, you can bring your own or you drink it there in a mug.

Clementine Reads-A-Lot : Zomato is a food delivery app in India and I loved it when I saw that they too have put the No Plastic Cutlery option but then when I ordered the food I got the plastic cutlery anyway. I stopped ordering from them. #zomatostopplastic

Teslao ツ : *_This man is a genius_* 👑 😆 👕 👖

Gus Garcia : Amazing video! have you thought of the positive impact that you could make by making a Spanish version (and other languages for that matter). I'd love to contribute or even produce a Spanish version of this video if you are interested! I think it can make a really big impact in Latin America.

Sara Rhodes : This should be #1 trending not Logan Paul news

Maria Sid : When you go to Tim Hortons , and bring a reusable cup you get 10% off

jklfds85 : THANK YOU UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA! THANK YOU UC IRVINE! THANK YOU UC MERCED! Gosh, we need more people like them! Especially in US!

ashrit kashyap : I thoroughly enjoyed this series. I'd love if the second season focused more on what everyone can do in their daily lives to lessen their environmental impact.

Junction Production Records : A&W in Canada is the best! Everything is biodegradable or 100% recyclable. The straws are even made out of PAPER! 🤩🙏

ABN Carloo : Please get this to trending

Brittany Rose : My work (a restaurant who does door dash) stopped carrying plastic bags, and we only have paper bags...no one's noticed 🤷‍♀️

parth mane : Videos was also good.. 👌🏽👌🏽

thewanderingpig : Really loving this series

seba leben : In Europe a bag costs money and you can’t buy plastic bags only paper bags and that is amazing because u get more conscious about bringing your own bag and reuse everything to safe money! Im from Berlin BTW

Peng Pong : We reuse sauce packets But they expire very quickly.

RainbowSprnklz : i liked how you made these videos because they really dont feel too shamey and offer compelling solutions that you seem excited about also i will use those ketchups

Andrew Offer : Love this video. Sometimes people who talk zero waste shame their audience. The guy in this video was the total opposite.

Ultimate Warrior : They should hand out cool University water bottles during orientation, so the students jump on that routine from the start

Maha Shahid : I work at kfc and I want to put up a sign that says please tell if you don't want a bag or utensils but i'm scared bc really rude ppl come to the store and maybe the manager and company won't approve.
