Members of The Plate Club, a reusable dishware provider service of the Students Society of McGill University, took over Ecolibrium on November 6th. They produced and hosted a full show that covered a wide range of topics.
The show featured an interview from a local student run-organization, Reboot McGill, to discuss how their actions respond to the problem of electronic waste on a micro-level scale.
Throughout the show, the birth, life and death of a Styrofoam plate is explained. Programmers also had the chance to speak with fellow McGill students and explored some of their conceptions of styrofoam.
The show includes a clip about the waste management system on McGill campus and in Canada from a conference and interview with Canadian Researcher Myra Hird.
Finally, a local Montreal musician and Plate Club Member Jess Roz does an amazing live in-studio performance!
