Are We Eating Plastic for Dinner? | Dhruv Boruah | TEDxCamden

Is that water in your bottle or is the bottle in your water?

Dhruv Boruah was born in a remote village in northeast India and soon got used to rising to challenges, negotiating flooded rivers simply to get back home. After graduating as an Engineer, he lived, worked and studied in India, Germany and Spain, before settling in the UK. He completed his MBA and his professional career includes entrepreneurial and consulting roles in both venture capital backed start-ups and Fortune 500 companies

His latest project was to cycle ‘ON’ the river Thames on a floating bike. He collected plastic waste to raise public awareness about plastic pollution. “The Thames Project” has been covered by the BBC, ITV, London Live, Timeout, Metro, NTV Russia etc. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
